this should produce some output on your terminal. please mail this to the

when you run your dreamweaver from a real win install, it uses the program 
file in your dreamweaver directory but the system files of your real win

usually installed in the win/win system dir (e.i. DCOM).

BTW: did you install any native dlls?
