VB3.0 and WIN 95

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.

Reinstalling the VB3.0 is not a sollution. It must be a setup some were with WIN 95 or it is not compatible. If I cannot use VB3.0, what version of MS ACCESS VB4 and VB5 are able to handle? (MS ACCESS 1.1, 2 or latest version)

Most probably, your version of DAO (the Jet Engine) on your Win 95 system is the problem.  Appropriate Drivers are also installed when you install Access.  If you install the earlier version of Access on your Win95 system, then check your references and pick up the right one, you should be able to pull in the .dll version you need to work with your Access 1.1 database.

another way to get the required .dll would be to compile your application on the w3.1 system using the setup wizard, then install ii on the 95 system. This should pick up and transfer the appropriate Jet engine .dll for you.
