Receiving System Error 5 (IBM DB2 ODBC DRIVER)

Looking for help to resolve error I am getting when I run vbs scripts. Scripts execute DLL components which use DB2 Connect to pull data.

scripts does a name search creating an ADODB.Recordset object and a CIF.CIFDB object

the CIF.CIFDB component starts starts a set recordset = to CIF.search(...
then fails giving the following error message.

CIF: Specified driver could not be loaded due to system error 5 (IBM DB2 ODBC DRIVER).

Using Component Services, COM+ Applications, CIF package which includes CIF.CIFDB.

CIF.CIFDB is a in-house developed middle tier VB 6.0 DLL component which runs in conjunction with 20 to 30 other DLL components to connect CIIS mainframe services to front-end web based calling applications.

Can any tell me what is causing the system error 5 and how do I fix the problem?

Sounds no permissions to SQLLIB directory. Here is a possible solution.

I appreciate the response. I talked with the DB2 SME for the client and we worked through the permissions on the SQLLIB folder and sub-folders. Checking or unchecking the Read and Execute did not have any affect on the error I am receiving. Any other suggestions?
