Have you defined the System (HKLM) environment variable PPSAPI_DLLS to 
point to C:\Program Files (x86)\NTP\bin\loopback-ppsapi-provider.dll?

Win-Break/Advanced system settings/Advanced tab/Environment Variables... button/
/System variables pane/New.../New System Variable dialogue:
Variable name:  PPSAPI_DLLS
Variable value: C:\Program Files (x86)\NTP\bin\loopback-ppsapi-provider.dll

reg query "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment" /f PPSAPI_DLLS
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment
    PPSAPI_DLLS    REG_SZ    C:\Program Files (x86)\NTP\bin\loopback-ppsapi-provider.dll
