The database that this application was built on requires a file MSDWCF.DLL be installed on it, and your pc does not have it.

You'll have to get with whomever supports this app, get-copy-register the required file on your pc, and run again.

Likely, you'll also have to go into any code module, Tools:References, and where it shows 'MISSING: {Your File}', uncheck, then re-check.

Hope this helps.

Most likely bet is the file needs registering

regsvr  

is the command to use

And I see no online references to this exact file ... perhaps this is a misspelling?

Did you copy/paste the 2000 db to your machine?

Typically this is used in Data Access Pages; if you're not using these, I'd suggest doing as Jim suggests, but with a slight alteration: (a) remove the reference and then (b) compile the applicatiion (Debug - Compile) to see if you even need it. If you compile and everything works and seems okay, then leave the reference out ... if the compiler starts throwing errors, you may need to re-reference it. If you find that you do need them, make sure to re-register both of these

between the uncheck and recheck you should close and then reopen the references dialog box.
