Error 429 ActiveX component can't create object on Windows XP SP2
Posted on 2005-02-24
I have some code that is dying on Windows XP SP2
The error message is: (my format)
2/24/2005 4:06:59 PM Err Number= 429 Printerr=ActiveX component can't create object
Additional=Loading database\ Section=FMDATA\Err line number=125
The code is
122: dbClientRecord.CommandType = adCmdText
124: dbClientRecord.RecordSource = "Select * from VERSION"
I am using DAO 3.6 and MSADODC from VB SP6
This seems to only happen on Windows XP SP2 and Office 2003. I have seen this error listed by others numerous times on this site but most questions are several years old. I have tried the Office 2000 fix for no help. I updated the DAO reference. I suspect that something is improperly registered, but I'm unsure how to fix it on the target machine now that the damage is done and how to avoid on future installations.
