KB2264107 - A new CWDIllegalInDllSearch registry entry is available to control the DLL search path algorithm (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2264107)
1. Remove the CWDIllegalInDllSearch entry or change this to a different value.
2. Add the full path to the CCM folder to the environmental variables PATH:
C:\Windows\SysWOW64\CCM or C:\Windows\system32\CCM depending on the architecture of the OS the client is being installed on.
If CWDIllegalInDllSearch has been configured to 0xFFFFFFFF then rundll32.exe is unable to find the PolicyAgentProvider.dll when running in the current working directory.
