I use Visual Basic 5.0 professional edition.
I made installation disks with a Application Setup Wizard. My program uses both dBase IV and Access databases and I checked those lines when program asked my about installable ISAMs.
Anyway when I tryed to install my program to another computer that installation goes well but when I started my program I got an error which said something about "Can't find ISAM driver".
Anyone any idea why??

Thanks in advance!

Why this program works in my machine if there isn't all the necessary drivers?

When I checked those dBase IV and Access databases when program asked my about installable ISAMs. Now I also checked that dbUseODBC option also and when I continued there was many missing files.
So I guess I have to install those MSODBC drivers like you told me. How can I install those drivers and why my program works in my machine??

hi majala
try this, go to this site http://www.sysinternals.com/ and download the filemon (it is a filemonitor)
then install it in a directory on the machine that your app is working on .
then install it aswell on the machine that is giving you the error .

what u then do is use the filter in filemon to only show files for your app . what filemon does is it shows you every single read/write to any file that your app is using,looking for or trying to use . i used this in a problem and it was fantastic .

1) first run it on the machine that is working . then save the log(filemon) to a file
2) second run filemon on the pc that is not working . copy that log to a file (using save as)

then on your pc open both files and compare them line by line and see were your problems are ie : dlls for your 2 dbs .

it works well it has helped me many times , to fix problems .
hope it helps
if you have a problem getting filemon, mail me and i will mail it to you : clazar@softnet.co.za
cheers
