Problem with executable

I've created a system and it works fine at home. I created the distribution disks with application setup. I installed it onto another system, but when i tried to run it i got two errors, see below:

1: Disk or Network error - on every menu.
2: Object variable or With block not set - on some menus.

I know the first error has something to do with the databases, not closing them, but i'm using bound controls and i thought they opened and closed automatically. Can anyone help?

Your disk drives are not set up the same on both computers. You are using a drive on the development machine like D:
that is not the same as D: on the installed machine. This would cause you block error also.

Have a setup form where the new user sets the paths to his files. Use the path selected rather than the hard coded one.
