PowerBulder 12.6 3506 consuming web service

Thanks to some googling skills and the great advice that's already been dispensed here I have been able to convert a SOAP called service to a .NET called service.

I can run this successfully interactively, I can run it via the application I create.

My end users cannot run it.  They get the error "The .NET engine is unableto start."  (Yes, the error is missing a space between unable and to, that's just how the strings come out of e1.GetMessage() where e1 is SoapException (from pbwsclient126.pbd))

So my question is..

Do I need to install the full .net runtime on every end user machine that will be running my application, or is there a list of files I can put into my application directory?

I'm guessing that i need to install the full runtime, but I've been wrong before, so I figured I would ask

Hi Doug,

Try moving  these two assemblies
Sybase.Powerbuilder.WebService.Runtime.dll and
Sybase.PowerBuilder.WebService.RuntimeRemoteLoader.dll into the
application folder.

If that doesn't work, download Process Monitor from Microsoft and see what is not being found.
