Run-time error 713 using custom software

I've installed custom software on my machine, which runs Windows 2000 (version 5.0, build 2195, service pack 2 - don't know how much of this is relevant). A few steps into running the software I get a run-time error 713: class not registered, Looking for object with CLSID: {00000010-0000-0010-8000-00AA006D2EA4}.

I've looked through previous posts on this and other websites, and the general recommendation seems to be to run regedit to locate the file with this CLSID, then unregister and reregister it. In my case, when I run regedit, it does not find a file with that CLSID.

Again, don't know if the following is relevant: I downloaded the same application on another computer running Win98, and it works fine. The application was last modified Nov 2001. There is no support from the developer.

Thanks for your help,

Were you logged in as an admin when you installed this?  You could look for the CLSID on the 98 box to see what the file is if the ID is the same and manually register it on the Win2k box.

I don't understand your question, but I did look for the CLSID on the 98 box. (Sorry - took a while because the 98 machine is my home computer and the 00 machine is my work computer.) It refers to the file DAO.DBEngine.35. I indeed do not have that file on the Win2k machine. Now I guess I have some more questions before I am quite done:

(1) where would I fine that file to download it?
(2) when I download it, where should it go?
(3) Might I create other problems by putting that file on my computer? (e.g., would other programs that so far have used v3.6 get confused and try to use the newly installed v3.5 instead)?

Thanks again,

Your software would need to be updated, you should not replace that engine with the older version.

I figured out something else to do, but wanted to tie down this loose thread - and give you points for addressing the question. Thanks for your help, MSGeek.
