I have created a VB6 system which uses MSAccess.

I have run the 'Package and Deployment Wizard' and created my setup.exe.

When I run the Setup.Exe on another PC I get the following errors 'Cannot register MSDADC.DLL' , 'Cannot register EXPSRV.DLL' . The program then carries on and looks as if it has installed ok.

On running the application the Main screen runs fine but on trying to access any other screen which uses any ActiveX Components the following error message is produced 'RUNTIME ERROR 429.
ActiveX Component Cannot Create Object.'

Can anyone please help, Why does this not work.

You seem to install on Windows 95 or 98?

For your first problem, get DCOM98.exe from http://www.microsoft.com/com/dcom/dcom98/dcom1_3.asp and install it prior to your package (required by ADO).

For your second problem, install SP3 for Visual Studio (from http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/sp/vs6sp3/default.asp).
