Opening Access 2.0 DBs

I am trying to connect my MS ACCESS 2.0 Database to the WWW via a VB-CGI-Script. I figured out, how to transfer data from a HTML-Form to my VB-programm but for some reason I can't open any ACCESS 2.0 Databases with this VB 3.0 Programm. I know that I have to install the MS Compatibility Layer and I did so, but it does not help. Do you have any idea what I am doing wrong? I think I did something wrong in the installation of the Compatibility Layer but it seems to be so easy. I don't know what went wrong. I can access Databases in the ACCESS 1.1 format so the problem must be the Compatibility Layer. Do you have any idea what could have gone wrong?

Make sure you have Access 2.0 installed on the machine where the VB program is running. The compatibility layer does not replace Access 2.0; rather, it just allows you to read that version of DB.
