DBdriver failed to load - BI Launch Pad


We are experiencing very strange behavior from the BI Launch Pad. The following errors are occurring when refreshing a WebI report via the BI Launch pad

Database error: (CS) "DBDriver failed to load : F:\SAP Business Objects\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\dataAccess\connectionsServer\drivers\lib32\

for the following DLL files: dbd_mssql.dll, dbd_wsqloledb and dbd_oci.dll

This error does not occur if we set the connection security to "full control", however setting the connections to "view on demand" will cause these errors. These errors also do not happen when using WebI rich client, regardless of security settings on the connections.

This error also only occurs for Universe created with the IDT (BOE 4.0), we have older universes still in .unv 3.x mode which work fine with the connections set to "view on demand".

Another odd thing is if we reboot the environment I can run the report from BI Launch pad one time successfully. A second refresh will produce these errors until another reboot occurs.

We have an ODBC connection to HANA that refreshes fine with "view on demand".

Any help is greatly appreciated.
