?One - the original in there (windows\system) was the CTL3DV2.dll
the other CTL3D.dll was the one added by CUSM. durring install.

?The install instrustions say not to mix versions which I thought I would be
doing by putting them both in there. (I thought CTL3DV2.dll
might be Version #2 [since the only difference is the "V2" hence, I would be
mixing versions]?

? Also the instructions say NOT to put the CTL3.dll file in Windows\System if
another is there already, which it looks to me like I would be doing againts
their advice by putting both CTL3D.dll AND CTL3DV2.dll in there together?

WHAT SHOULD I DO ????????????
