I'm using ABBYY SDK\11\FineReader Engine\Bin64\FREngine.dll, I'm able to use it with standard .exe windows app, but I'm unable to load the dll in a WindowsService. The error is at this point

        // Load the FREngine.dll library
        dllHandle = LoadLibraryEx(enginePath, IntPtr.Zero, LOAD_WITH_ALTERED_SEARCH_PATH);

No handle is returned, the error inner exception has: _COMPlusExceptionCode -532462766
