Thanks for the reply.. 1. It is the same script. Moreover even if the
scripts change, if my script uses that module, shouldn't it be there
in that zip. 2. I've used the same installer on the second machine
too. 3. No, am not sharing the directory.
         Another observation I made is, if I copy the file
from the first machine to the second machine, these script runs
without any exception. But I can't every time copy the zip.:-(

Thank you once again,
Venu Madhav.
