DBEngine failure

I just installed an app that I wrote on a new machine. The app runs fine on my development machine, but dies on the econd machine. I isolated the error to the following line:

Set db =Engine.Workspaces(0).OpenDatabase("iqserver.mdb")

The error that occurs is 424: Object required. I wrote a program that basically tried to open and then close the database. It works on the devlopment machine and fails on the other machine. If I try to display DBEngine.version the app fails with the "Object Required" error. It shows 2.5 on the development machine. I think I have all of the required
OCX and DLL files on both machines. Any clues would be greatly appreciated.

BTW, this is a 16 bit app.

Thanks,
Bill

You need to register the files on the second machine. Use the VB setupkit to generate a setup application, when you run this it will automatically register all installed DLLs and OCXs. If the problem persists, you may have to remove the DLLs and OCXs before reinstalling.

Thanks, that's right. The proble was being caused by a faulty install setup that was not registering DAO2516.DLL even though it wasbeing copied. I created a new install setup and then it worked. We've now corrected the original install routine and it works too.
