[Zope] ZOracleDA(dco2)/Win2K - doesn't work from service

I've a setup:
 Zope 2.5.0 with INSTANCE_HOME
 Windows 2000 server
 Oracle 8i 8.1.7 client
 ZOracleDA (dcoracle2) 1.1

When I run Zope from command line, everything is fine.

When it is run as a service, the product doesn't give any error. But when you try to open a ZOracleDA connection, it raises an error in connect.py.

The same DB connection works flawlessly when Zope is started using the batch file.

  - cross checked the parameters in the registry and batch file. Same.
  - Recompiled ZOracleDA binary
  - Moved ZOracleDA from INSTANCE_HOME/Products to lib/python/Products and back

Our sysadmin would like to run Zope as a service.

I'm at my wits end with this now!

Any hints/suggestions will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance
