I know this particular problem's been solved, but...

As a general tool for debugging such things, I suggest Filemon,
available from http://www.sysinternals.com/ as free software.  This
allows you to watch all file operations by a specific process, including
DLL opens.  Look out for failed file opens.

That site is, in general, an excellent resource for sysadmins and
developers.  Other highlights include a similar tool for monitoring
registry accesses, a way of capturing blue screens of death for
analysis, and a cornucopia of similar stuff.  Some of the bigger
packages are now only available for a fee, but the small stuff such as
filemon and regmon remain free.
