How to create an Mdb in code

I have moved from D3.02 to D5 (pro)
have a routine written in d3 which works. It's in a unit by its self.  In D5 it crashes and I get the message CoInitialize not Called.  What goes?

Note: I am not using any of the "Servers" from the server page, and also employ late binding.

Here's thre code:

unit Mdb;

interface
uses
  Windows,ComObj, Messages, SysUtils, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms, Dialogs,
  StdCtrls;

 procedure BldMdb(FileName:String);
implementation
 const
  dbLangGeneral = ';LANGID=0x0409;CP=1252;COUNTRY=0';
  dbVersion30 = 32; {choose this for Access 95 database}
  dbEncrypt = 2;
var
  DBEngine: Variant;
  Workspace: Variant;

 procedure BldMdb(FileName:String);

begin
  DBEngine := CreateOleObject('DAO.DBEngine.35');
  Workspace := DBEngine.Workspaces[0];
  Try
  Workspace.CreateDatabase(Filename, dbLangGeneral, dbEncrypt);
  Except
  end;
end;

end.

Thanks,
 Paul Sutton

make sure Application.Initialize is in the dpr file (just before application.run).
