After Update via System Update, Thinvantage Access Connection failt to load with reference to a missing call in a DLL (very long string). Deinstalled Access Connections now and will reinstall manually...


After reinstall it still fails to load:

ACTray.exe - Unable To Locate Component
This Application has failed to start because ACGUIHlpr.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.

Re: Access Connection 4.52 is available for Vista and XP

Every time I try to create a new profile, the program crashes (AppName:acmaingui.exe, AppVer:, ModName:acon.dll, ModVer: Offset:00049885).
I can switch between the existing profiles.
Also tried to reinstall the software but the problem is the same.
Any ideas?
