DB2 Connect Error in .NET FrameWork 2.0 Application


We have an .NET application running on Windows 2003 Server. I have
installed DB2 Connect V8.2 EE and also DB2 Connect Run Time Client V9.0
on top of it to support .NET FrameWork 2.0.

The application was running fine in the past. I don't know what changed
on the server but now I am getting SQL1159 Reason Code 2 for DB2APP.DLL
file. I checked the description for error and its says "File Not Found"

I asked the programmer to do a trace on .NET Application. I am pasting a
portion of the trace below. Look at the extra / in the path

I know why its failing with SQL 1159 but I can't figure out where its
picking up the extra / in the path

I checked all the environment variables and did a search on the registry
entries for // and db2app.dll

I have installed DB2 Connect EE V8.2 in F:/Program Files/IBM/SQLLIB and
Run Time Client V9.0 in F:/Program Files /IBM/SQLLIB_01

Appreciate if someone can help.
