I think you didn't deploy midas.dll with your app.

Are you using it for flat-file or a Multi-Tiered application?

Maybe it's not TClientDataSet that causes the app to fail on that computersomething, but something else...

MDAC? DCOM95?

When I try this code:

ClientDataSet1.Open;

Delphi raises "unable to load MIDAS.DLL"

Did you put midas.dll in the same dir as the app?

Is there another midas.dll (different version) on the sydtem?

I have only one version, and I put it at the same directory and in system directory. I copy a working dll from another computer but without any results.

The error occure only on 1 computer out of 20 computers

Difficult to say...

Try some Monitoring Tools from http://www.sysinternals.com to see what's going wrong.
