SAPCPE.EXE not running after kernel upgrade on NW 7.01 SR1


I have a freshly installed NW 7.01 SR1, which was running perfectly until I tried to update the kernel. Once a install the new kernel, sapcpe.exe is showing in red in the MMC console and cannot be executed.

According to note 684106, I updated the vcredist_x64 found in the NTPATCH folder on the Installation Master CD. According to note 684106 I also need to update the DBGHELP.DLL file in the \Windows\System32 and and \Windows\syswow64 folder.

The problem is "Windows File Protection" is not allowing me to update this file in the \Windows\syswow64 folder. As soon as I replace the file, it gets overwriten by the Windows original DBGHELP.DLL file which is an older version.

I'm running this on Windows Server 2003 R2 SP2 64bit

Anyone out there found how to work around this issue?

I'm running out of ideas...

Need help.
