the 1st one:

1. On the computer that hosts Microsoft Windows Terminal Server or the computer on which Microsoft Access is installed, click Start, and then click Run.
2. Type regsvr32 followed by the path to your DAO file. Enclose this path in quotation marks. For example, to register the DAO 3.5 library, use the following command: regsvr32 "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\DAO\DAO350.DLL"

and when u registered, it registered fine?
sometimes its worth unregistering then re-registering

after u registered, did u check the referenceS? go to vba window/select tools/references
ensue u have latest version checked

to unregister

regsvr32 /u

when i try to open the preferences i got this error:
your microsoft office access database or project contains a missing or broken reference to the file 'DAO350.DLL' version 5.0.
i think is related to the error i have before

no probs
u have registered it, right?

Now scroll thru and u may find its shown as MISSING

Uncheck it (Microsoft DAO Object Library is the name)

click ok,

Now go back into References and check it (the latest version 3.6 I believe)
then click ok

to unregister,
its

regsvr32 /u "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\DAO\DAO350.DLL"  

this removes the registration

now u register it again

regsvr32 "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\DAO\DAO350.DLL"  



Now typing this in, I realised its DAO350.DLL. This is the old version

so this is what I suggest u do, try the later version

'get rid of old
regsvr32 /u "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\DAO\DAO350.DLL"  

'add in new
regsvr32 "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\DAO\DAO360.DLL"
