DataCombo not displaying records pulled from a dataenvironment command object.

Please help.  I have a VB6 project that uses a DataEnvironment to connect to records in a SQL2000 database.  The project has been running well for two years.  I installed it on a client machine (XP Pro, Service Pack 2/ Office 97) the other day and did not receive any errors during the setup routine; however, when the client clicks on any of the DataCombo boxes there are no records, and, strangely enough, he does not get any errors.

    What kind of connection are you using? Did you install MDAC?

    I installed MDAC 2.6.  I am using and ADO connection string.

    Anyone?   This program works on all other PCs in the building.  I have tried running the setup program again.  Still didn't work.

    Please help.

    I found the problem.  The "msbind.dll" did not copy and register properly.

    Thanks for trying.
