Package & deployment

I am having trouble getting my ADO application to run on another computer. (WIN 95 and WIN 98) I used the "Package & Deployment" wizard
to create floppies.  At the end of running setup, the setup program said some of the files on the target machine were old
and I should reboot to continue.  I did that.  After PC rebooted
I ran the setup again, and all seemed to go fine.

When I tried to run the my application, I got the error msg
"ActiveX component can't create object or return reference to this object (Error 429)"

I finally coppied my MSADOR15.DLL (Ran regsvr32 if needed) to the target machine
Window\system folder. an this message went away.

Noe I get the error msg  "Run Time Error 3706   Method '~' of object '~' failed".

Thanks Microsoft... :)
What must I do now?
I need this to be very easy to install.  The users may not be very experienced computer users.

Thanks

Install DCOM98.EXE (which you can find on your VB CD) before doing your setup on WIN 9x computers.

I tried running DCOM98 after I ran the setup,  same problem
Then I uninstalled my app. and ran dom98 again, and then my setup.  That seemed to work. it was MSDAO15.DLL that made the 429 go away.

How can I make that part of the setup?

You definitly have to run DCOM98 before your setup.

With PDW, I never found a way to automatically execute DCOM98.EXE.
