It seems like your PC / laptop does not have the file under : c:\Program Files\Microsoft Security Client\MSESysprep.dll

Can you verify by going to the location and see whether the file is there ??

Does MS Sysprep work with Microsoft Security Client?  If I uninstall Microsoft Security Client, Sysprep will run into issue.  We might go to regedit to clean it up.  Please confirm.
