I have an 32 Bit VB4 application running under Win95 which has to manipulate a MS Access 2.0 MDB database file. I have tried both DAO 2.5 and DAO 3.0 to achieve this.
The main problem is that the app runs great on my PC (where it was developed) but refuses to run correctly on the  target PC; It just gives Error 3041 every time it attempts to open the database!
I suspect it's either a Registry entry or a DLL problem

i have oft found problems with the default visual basic installer.  if you are usuing the builder that comes with VB, then make sure you are registering the DAO2516.DLL properly - every time i had errors like you describe, if i manually registered the DLL, then everything worked great, and fixing the install also provided excellent results.  hope this helps you out.
