VB3Pro and WIN 95 DATA MANAGER

When I try to use the option 'DATA MANAGER' to see the ACCESS database I get an error "NOT FOUND". If I run the program DATAMNGR I received the same message. When I execute my program I have the same message when I try to open the database. The database was created with ACCESS 1.1.  
If I do the same thing with Windows 3.1 everything is find.
I do not do anything special when I installed VB3 on windows
3.1.

theroux,

VB3 is a 16-bit programming environment. It was designed for Windows 3.1x. All its controls including custom controls are 16-bit VBXs. The same applies for the Data Manager AddIn. It uses the 16-bit database access engine. Some related data access files  seems to have been overwritten with newer installations.
The only solution to your problem is to reinstall VB again over the existing one (in the same directory).
I had the same problem and I solved it that way.

Regards
Kamal

Reinstalling VB3.0 over the same directory did not solved my problem. It must be a setup some were or it is completele incompatible. My windows 95 is installed on C: and VB3.0 on D:.

If I cannot use VB3.0 with WINDOWS 95, What version of MS ACCESS
VB4.0 or VB5 are able to handle? (MS ACCESS 1.1, 2 or later version)

You might have some Microsoft Jet database engine files missing.
VB3 as well as its data manager work fine on Win95, and being on drive C or D doesn't matter.
VB3 supports Access databases up to version 1.1
VB4 supports Access v2.0 databases (I'm not sure if it supports later versions).
VB5 supports Access95 databases as well.

My problem is solved when I am using VB 4.0 and I must find the
right engine for VB3.0.

Thanks
