Do you have two TextPipe versions installed?

If so, DataPipe may find the wrong version. To force DataPipe to find the correct one, you must register the correct TextPipe in the registry, either by simply running it (which causes it to become registered), or by using the following command line:

textpipe.exe /REGSERVER
