This is generally the result of an older lizardtech DLL in
C:\windows\system32 being used in preference to the onces
distributed with FWTools.  The conflicting DLLs will likely
have names like lti_dsdk_cdll.dll and lti_dsdk_dll.dll.

You can potentially copy the files of this name from FWTools\bin over
the ones in c:\windows\system32 or if you aren't worried about other
applications just delete the ones in C:\windows\system32.
