Error message when starting a network AutoCAD 2000 license on a Windows 2000

We have a 10 seat network AutoCAD 2000 license running on a Windows NT4 server, we are not using a dongle, we are using ACADln as the license manager. We have install two new client's on the network that are running Windows 2000. We install AutoCAD 2000 on these clients yesterday; the installation went fine. But the Windows 2000 clients cannot seem to locate a valid license. The message received when trying to start AutoCAD on the Windows 2000 systems is;

"FATAL ERROR: Security system(hardware lock or network license) is not functioning or is improperly installed."

Do you have any documents that cover this situation or has anyone else reported having this problem?

You need an updated version of adesksys.dll. It needs to be placed in the same location
as the acad.exe file on the windows 2000 clients. The link I'm giving you is VERY long
(there's probably a shorter one, but I can always find this one) so watch out for
wrapping.
