Hi i am using "Microsoft ADO Data Control 6.0(SP4)(OLEDB)" in an desktop application using VB-6.0, Database used is Access 97.

Is this supposed to create any problems.... is there any compatibility limitation or some kind of known-unknow issues with this.....

I am getting problems with installation CD on windows 98 and access 97 system.

I am getting the following error "runtime automation error 2147319779[80028280]" when i click on enter on a splash screen, developed using VB6.
Actually on clicking on "enter" i am creating an object of IE and customizing it.
I know that this error means that it is not able to create external objects...

The above mentioned splash is working fine, before i install an application which is developed using VB6 and Access2000. and i am getting this problem only on windows-98.

Any suggetsions about how to handle this issue....
