Jet Access DLL Problem (Distribution Problem?)

I'm trying to install a program that I wrote years ago in VB5 on a Win 98 machine. The program requires database access using Jet 3.5. The setup (created with VB App setup wiz) seems to go smoothly. When the program runs, and attempts to create or access a database, I get the following error:

Error # 3447 The Jet VBA file (VBAJet.dll for 16-bit versions, or VBAJet32.dll for 32-bit versions) failed to initialize when called. Try reinstalling the application that returned the error.

The file in question (VBAJet32.dll) is installed in the Win/System directory.

Can anyone tell me why this is happening and how to resolve it?

Hi AHawth. Try including mdac_type 2.0 as part of your installation package. You may also run it separately. Also, try running this from the [start] --> [run] :

regsvr32 c:\mysystempath\VBAJet32.dll

Hope that helps :)

Thanks MYLim,

I don't know how you found that link but it worked great. I spent about 2 hours looking for that information on the MS site last night and never found it.
