Disk or Network Error

I keep getting the error, "Disk or Network
Error", whenever I try to access a form in my project (at run-time)
that has data controls on it. I recently moved from Win95 to NT4 for
development. I still distribute on Win95 and this is where the
error occurs. I've read in MS's KB that I need to set the
enviroment variable, "c:\winnt35\temp" but I'm not distributing
in NT. If I try to set the variable with the same statement as
above in Win95, Win95 defaults to it's own, "c:\windows\temp."

BTW, I never had this problem until I moved to NT. MS's KB says
it's related to NT. Any suggestions?
Thanks,
Brett

Brettr, the error you receive sounds like a drive / path-name is not valid. Did you check the properties of the data controls, if the "Database"-drive and path do exist ? Did you try to open the database that is given there, e.g. with a database maintenance software ?
The message "Disk or Network error" sounds heavily like an access try to a Floppy disk that isn't available or a network path that's not valid. Did you change any drive names when moving to NT4 ? CD-ROM for example ?
Did I understand you right that it works under NT, but in Win95 the error occurs? Is the hard drive of your database now NTFS formatted and you have problems in Win95 ?
If all this is not the case:
Try to set the "Database" - property empty, and filling this property in every Form_Load() by the following code:
Set DataX.Recordset = MainForm.DatabaseX.OpenRecordset("TableName")

where you have one MainForm with the Database open.
