FumeFX 2010 Error Loading DLLs

I uninstalled all Afterworks plugins for 3ds Max 2009 and also uninstalled 3ds Max 2009 (32-bit).
I then downloaded and installed Dreamscape, FumeFX, and AfterBurn for 3ds Max 2010 (32-bit). DreamScape and AfterBurn appear to be working correctly, but 3ds Max is reporting an error when trying to load a DLL for FumeFX (this occurs during the 3ds Max splash screen):

failed to initialize.
Error code 126 - The specified module could not be found.

I'm not sure what module this dialog is referring to. I checked that the DLO file listed above exists, and it does.

I press OK on this dialog box and then 3ds Max continues to load normally, but then another error occurs when the UI appears:

File Error:
Could not open file FumeFx.ini for writing.
Global preferences will not be saved.

I press OK, and then I can continue using 3ds Max.

The installers that I used are:

I did try uninstalling FumeFX (I initially installed it in custom mode and selected all of the components), and then I reinstalled FumeFX using the recommended configuration. Both installation attempts result in the same behavior listed above.

I'm using Vista Ultimate (SP1, 32-bit, all updates), and 3ds Max 2010 (32-bit).

Thanks a bunch for any help or FYIs.
