Windows 2008 Dependencies

I'm trying to use splicer in an application I'm writing that will run as a service on windows 2008 server DataCenter Edition.  I'm running into an error when the splicer.dll is first used.  I'm guessing I don't have one of the dependencies installed.  What are the required components that I need?

Error:

Exception: System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException (0x80040154): Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID {78530B75-61F9-11D2-8CAD-00A024580902} failed due to the following error: 80040154 Class not registered (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80040154 (REGDB_E_CLASSNOTREG)).
   at Splicer.Timeline.DefaultTimeline..ctor(Double fps, String temporaryStoragePath)

Further investigation leads me to believe it's related to qedit.dll which isn't installed and can't be copied and registered from my Win7 machine.  Any ideas?

Thanks,

Turns out that Windows 2008 doesn't have the components necessary to leverage the splicer.dll installed by default. I simply added the "Desktop Experience" Feature to my installation and the appropriate COM DLLs were installed.
