Data Access Errors

Data Access Errors

Question:
I’ve developed an application using VB4.0, but I can’t distribute it because the installed application breaks on any reference to dbEngine object.In my machine the application runs perfectly, but in any computer without the VB4.0 installed, this application crashes (424 error or 429 error)Can you help me with this problem?

Answer:
The reason this probably isn’t working is that when you built the installation program, you probably forgot to include all of the Data Access DLLs required for Visual Basic applications. There is a list of them in the back of the Professional Features manual. In addition, the built-in Setup Wizard will add them for you if you check the correct box.
