Really i have not idea what may be the problem.
Glue is a simple .dlu, with no dependences to other files or configurations.
I would suggest you search glue.dlu in the full disk, delete all instances (to be sure Max is not loading it from other location than the "plugins" folder), and copy it again from the ZIP.
Once done, use some tool as HashTab
(it calculates the CRC of a file) to compare if glue .dlu is identical to the other workstations.
Also, turn off temporary your antivirus, in case it is blocking the DLL or similar.
