I am using a computer with windows95 as the operating system and I have the VB5 enterprise edition loaded (by the way it works fine on my NT system).  When i hit the line "SET mObjRDOEnvironment = RDOEngine.RDOEnvironments(0)" on the windows95 system I get the error "error 429: activeX component can't create object".  I have checked and all the same components and references are on both systems and in the same order.

The problem is that the DLL needed for the rdo are not correctly registered. This is due to the fact that you probably have installed an application with bad references.

You should reinstall the VB5 or reinstall your Service Pack 3. (I think it should do the right work for you).
