I have written an application which links to a Dbase IV database, which the users selects at runtime (using the common dialog control). This works fine on my PC, running Windows 2000 with Office 2000, but the client (running Windows 2000 Server, also with Office 2000), gets the error "Unexpected error from external database driver (8458)".
To eliminate a problem in the code, I have tried to simply link to the database from the Access db window. As expected, this works fine on my PC. On the client's PC however, after selecting the dbf file, it prompts for an index file. I do not have the index file, so I click Cancel, and then I get the error above.
I have to be able to link to the Dbase file. Any idea what could be wrong here?
