The program runs OK on the PC it was designed on. When using application wizard and load it on another PC we get the error "Can't open a database created with a previous version of your application". We have VB 4.0 installed on our PC's, but not on the PC that we are loading the application on. All PC's involved using NT. We cannot remove VB 4.0 from our PC's at this time. Does anyone know how to get around this?

Download Filemon or NTFilemon from www.sysinternals.com
Start Filemon and now run the application that gives the error.
Filemon will show a trace. In this trace it will also show you which
file failed to open. That's the one you are missing.

Filemon can be redirected in a dos box using filemon > output.txt

Copy the missing files and register them if needed with regsvr32.exe in case of DLL/OCX files

Also compare the versions of the DLL's used.
