DbServerType = 0 when trying to use dst_MSSQL2014

Hello, I'm working on a windows service that connects to SAP via DI API using SAPBobsCOM.

To connect to the company, I load all the parameters in the normal way. Here's a part of the code:

            oCompany = New SAPbobsCOM.Company

            'Set settings

            oCompany.Server = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings("DatabaseServerName")

            oCompany.DbServerType = SAPbobsCOM.BoDataServerTypes.dst_MSSQL2014

I'm having a problem on just one machine, where when I run the service I'm getting the error "(-125) no database server type specified". If I print oCompany.DbServerType then I get as result a zero ( 0 ) .

This is not related at all with having or not SQL 2014 installed, as I already tested this on a machine runnnig SQL 2008 and I can see dst_MSSQL2014 even if it does not connect. It has to be related to that particular machine since on another machine of the same network the service runs OK. Maybe something important to mention is that this machine did not have anything related to SAP until I installed the DI API yesterday.

I compiled using SAPBobsCOM version 9.10.150, this machine has on its machine a version 9.10.105.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
