I am using the following code to establish a rdo db connection .....

Global grdxConn As New rdoConnection

Sub InitializeDB()

Dim lstrConnect As String

rdoEngine.rdoDefaultCursorDriver = rdUseOdbc
   
'DSN Less connection
lstrConnect = "UID=;PWD=;" _
            & "Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};" _
            & "DBQ=C:\Leica\sap-migration\sutosap.mdb;" _
            & "DSN=;"
                   
grdxConn.Connect = lstrConnect
grdxConn.EstablishConnection

Exit Sub

...this works on my machine (win95), but not on another win95 machine, ..I get the following error on the first line (rdoEngine.rdoDefaultCursorDriver = rdUseOdbc) ...

"ActiveX component cannot create control" (error number 429)

...I've checked the dll versions for any rdo associated dlls, and they're the same on both machines, ...can anyone help ?

Could be a problem in registration of the .dlls.  Just because they are copied over to the other machine, doesn't mean the system will find them.  Either they had to make their way there through an install wizard/setup, which registers them, or through installation of something like VB Enterprise Edition, or they have to be manually registered with RegSvr.
