I have such problem:
I'm writting program that uses DAO classes and when i build it with MFC as static library everything is OK. But when build it with MFC as shared library, when I run it an exception occurs (Unable to initialize DAO/Jet db engine).
  Why it happens?

(sorry for my English :-( )

It shouldn't happen and I have built many components that use MFC as a shared library without any problems whatsoever. Which version of Visual C++ (or MFC) are you using? I would make sure that you have created a CDaoWorkspace and initialized the CDaoEngine properly. You might want to post your initialization code.

First of all i'm using VC++ 4.2 (and in my MFC there isn't CDaoEngine class)

And second, i don't think that it's coused by error in initialization becouse it WORKS when it's linked with MFC static library.

To initialize dao I create new CDaoDatabase object (it uses default workspace) in CDocument::OnNewDocument()

m_Data->Open("blahblah");

MS knowledge base article Q168004 "Unable to initialise DAO/Jet db Engine" explains the cause of this problem. Its very simple. With VC 4.2, MS shipped DAO 3.0, but with VC 5.0 DAO was upgraded to 3.5. For this to work with MFC, DAOCORE.CPP was incorrectly modified as shown in the article. This error meant that DAO 3.0 would not operate with MFC. This fault was deployed in MFC42.DLL Version 4.21.7022 with the initial release of VC++ 5.0. Now the last version (I had) of an MFC42.DLL which worked happily with VC++ 4.2 was 4.21.5160. What has happened is that a third party program has "infected" you with the faulty DLL, since its version number was greater than your orginal. You should find that either linking to static libraries, or using the debug version (i.e. MFC42D.DLL) will remove the problem. (If this is not the case then I am barking up the wrong tree!)

The fault in MFC42.DLL was removed in service pack 1. I am currently using the version from SP3 which is 4.21.7303 which works with both VC++ 4.2/DAO 3.0 and VC++ 5.0SP3/DAO 3.5.
