dao database access

I previously had software access a access 97  database using visual c++ and the CDatabase and CRecordset, class parameters including the afxdao.h file.   This code and application was running on a windows nt machine.  When we upgraded to run on a windows 2000 system the dao object can nolonger find the jet engine.  
Now for the question.  Has the MFC class been updated to handle a access 2000 database.  Or has any one else run into this probleme and can help me determine if I am missing a dll or jet driver on the Windows 2000 system.

For further refrence I also have a VB application access a 2000 database on the windows 2000 system that functions fine.  The visual studio 6.0 was used to develope all applications.

To test base connectivity, I use this technique:

1) Use the AppWizard to create a dialog-based App

2) Press Ctrl+W and click [Add Class]>>New

3) Name: CRsTest    Base class: CDaoRecordSet [OK]

4) In the next step, you should be alble to locate the mdb file and the ClassWizard should be able provide a list of tables and you cshould be able to bind all of the columns.

5) In an OnButton handle, use simple code like:

CRsTest crs;
crs.Open();

and you can use the debugger to examine the crs object and you should see data from the database.

If step 4 fails, then the DBMS is not setup correctly.  You can try using the Control Panel / ODBC applet to see if ODBC is able to talk to the database.  You can try re-installing Access and MDAC.  

Describe what happens when you try these things, and I'll help you diagnose the problem.

Thank you for your response,  After further digging we found that the MDAC did not have the correct jet database drivers.  We updated our Windows 2000 and MDAC and the application operates correctly so far.  I will post again if we experience further problemes.
