Cyclone III starter kit software issues

I've been trying to get my PC to talk to the Cyclone III starter kit board, but keep getting the same errors (see attached).  

 

"This application has failed to start because jtag_client.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem."  

 

Alas, reinstalling the software did not fix it. Nor did re-installing the driver for USB-blaster. 

 

I'm running XP with service pack 2 installed. 

 

Can someone show me a way to get this running? Thanks.

What's the Quartus version you're using on the respective computer? The error seems mysterious, because jtag_client.dll is present in previous and present Quartus versions. 

 

The problem can be expected, if jtag_client.dll has been removed from the quartus/bin directectory, or quartus/bin is missing in the Wndows path definition.

I tried following 2 methods: 

- copy DE0_ControlPanel.exe to C:\altera\90\qprogrammer\bin and then run it. 

- copy jtag_client.dll and dinkum_alt.dll to the folder where DE0_ControlPanel.exe was located.  

 

Both of them worked.
