Error Loading DLL. How do I find what dll the program is calling?

I'm using a proprietary software that runs fine on other computers with the same OS (Windows 7 64bit). It's used to load data from a Microsoft Access file (.mdb) into a SQL database. When I click on the button to begin the loading process, it gives me the error "Error Loading DLL" but it doesn't say what dll it's trying to load.

I reinstalled MS Office 2010 and ensured that no dll shows up as "MISSING" in the VBA editor --> Tools --> References.

There's no error logged in event viewer. Is there a way to find out what dll this application is trying to load?
