Hmmm...I'm not familiar with that DLL, but a little googling seems to
indicate that you may be able to get it off your installation CD:

The link above gives the steps for XP, but Vista will probably be
similar. I don't know for sure, but you may have to register the dll
once you've got it copied back onto your machine.
