ActiveX component can't create object

I have written a program in VB to connect to an access database using ado 2.1.

I then installed the program on several computers.  Everything is working fine except on 1 PC where I get the error message 'ActiveX component can't create object' when I try to run the program.

When I was installing the program on this machine I got the error message stdole2.tlb,asycfilt.dll,olepro32.dll,oleAut32.dll where all read only so I renamed these files and continued installing.


All the computers I am installing on have Win95 (I don't know why), but this was the only 1 I got this error message.

I have looked in c:\program files\Common\System and there was no ado dll for this PC.

Try running the MDAC Application, on the m/c. Also check if you have to instakk DCOM95, for Windows 95.

The MDAC App will be included in your setup kit installation package.

hope this helps.

In that machine, try install ADO2.5.. May be that could be the reason

>Try running the MDAC Application
This installs the ADO components only.
