Registry problem

I am attempting to install a program that was written in VB4.0/16 bit on a Windows 95 system. The program uses DAO2516.DLL. The setup routine copies the file to the hard drive but I can't get it to register correctly. I keep getting the following error: "LoadLibrary("c:\Windows\System\Dao2516.dll") failed. GetLastError returns 0x00000485.". I have tried registering the file myself using Regsvr32, but I get the same error. Any suggestions?

CHeck the dependencies file for DAO.  You are problably trying to register the files in the wrong order.  Check to see what the proper order should be.

I can't seem to find a dependencies file for DAO on my machine. Would it have a .DEP extension?

Yes, the dependency files usually have a .dep extension.  Also what installation program are you using?

What I have told you so far, that would be my only advice.  So since I don't know this stuff quite quickly, please reject my answer, or other people are not going to get the opportunity to solve your problem, and you will be left with no answer.  You might also want to check out this article on the Microsoft Knowledge base at http://support.microsoft.com/support the article is q150057 , this lists other news groups that deal with DAO.  That might also offer some help.
