I have just upgraded Office XP Pro to Office 2003 Pro.
All other programs seem to be working (Excel, Outlook etc.)
However, when I open Access2003 and either open an existing database OR
create new one, Access hangs, I send tech message to MS and I get the following
error Message:

Microsoft Visual Basic
'object library not registered'

Thanks

Thanks for trying BUT the article you refer to concerns ActiveServerPages and problems with Access using Crystal Reports. I do not have CrystalReports installed and the problem I encounter is from within the MSAccess2003 Database Application itself??

you may need to register Access VBA dll files, using the regsvr32 utility, the files are founf in \Program files\common files\Microsoft shared\vba\vba6

try to register all the dll files in there

to register a ddl file or olb file by using the regsvr32:

regsvr32 C:\Program files\common files\Microsoft shared\vba\vba6\MyDll.dll


cheers

Hello ahmedbahgat,
We seem to be getting closer to the problem.
I have done EXACTLY what you suggested, get the following results/errors:
for files VBACV10.dll, VBACV10D.dll, VBACV20.dll -
"C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\vba\vba6\etc was loaded,
but the dllRegisterServer entry point was not found.
The file cannot be registered."

The registration for the file vbe6.dll was successful.

What next, can you direct me to a download address forme to get the LATEST VB6.4(?) install files, OR is there some other procedure I should follow??

Thanks

like ahmedbahgat says, you need to register the dll's

but to be on the safe side, it would be better if you download the runtime libraries and install that, it will install all the basic libraries plus registers them

this link is for Access2002

Thanks again all.
"rockiroads" - I have been to the site you suggest, as you say it is for Access2002. That doesn't help me as I am using Access2003 on WindowsXP Pro. I have checked the version number on my MSaccess.exe file and it is 11.0.5614.0 - so the upgrade suggested above is no good. Any how, it sems from what has been said above that it must be my VB files and / or registry that have problems. I need help to get the latest VB6.4 (for applications) and / or instructions on what I need to do in my registry. THANKS.

ok, the windowsupdate might be able to help, runtime libraries should be available from the ms website

Hello everybody, Sorry for silence. Very heavy workload and have been on Holiday.
I did all as instructed above. Not 100% effective. However, I have a program (Legacy) installed on my PC and when I installed an Update, my Access Database started working OK. Strange but true. Sorry for not having gotten back sooner. THANKS everybody for your help and suggestions.

I would appreciate if 'jadedata' the EE Cleanup Volunteer would be kind enough to spread the points out equally to all who helped.

THANKS and best regards,
MIKE
