Normally this is not an issue. Simply check the file to make sure it has similair information to the following:

Description: Client Service for NetWare Provider and Authentication Package DLL
File Version: 5.1.2600.3015

If the values are similair to these it should be ok.

Keep in mind that these may be different slightly if you are on Windows 2000, Vista, 98, 95, or ME.
