Okay, from the get-go, I don't think this has anything to do with the VBCL. The question relates back to several I've asked about a dBASE program. I wrote it in VB3, and it runs fine under windows 3.1. But if I run it under windows 95, it will give the "incompatible database version" error when it hits the line: Set MyDB= OpenDataBase(form1!Dir2.Path,0,0,"dBASE;"). I can't see why it gives me this error when I am not trying to access an MS Access database.

first of all, dBase is not a valid connect string.  dBase III or dBase IV is.   That could be your problem.  If it is not, make sure your ISAM drivers are installed properly.  Also make sure they are being pointed to by the msacc20.ini (I believe that is what it is in vb3) .  In vb4-16 you can make your own INI file, and set the path to it by

dbengine.inipath = "filepath"

but make sure you do this prior to doing ANY data operations.
