Access Runtime version problem.

I used the setup wizard to created a runtime version of a program that uses an ActiveX control.
When I install this on a machine Win/95 & NT that has ACCESS 97 the installed application works fine.  However when I install it on a machine that does not have Office I get the following error. "Microsoft  Access can't  find the dynamic-link library (DLL) Mso97.  Rerun the Microsoft Access or Microsoft Office setup program."

Any ideas.

You can take that dll off of your machine and install and register it on the new machine...

regsvr32.exe mso97.dll
Paul is correct. You will need to copy the mso97.dll file to the "system" folder of the other machine.

If you dont have the wyse installer program, you can make an executable zip file. In order to place that file into the system folder, simply just add the correct directory to the extracting line. (example: C:\windows\system)
It will unzip to that folder.
