Hello,

I have an MS access 2003 applaction that displays a missing reference error message: Broken Reference to the file DAO350.dll.  I have downloaded DAO350.dll from microsoft and redirected the libary folder to point to the file I downloaded.  I have also used MS Access Developer Extensions to package the the DB and run it on the test machine, but I still receive the error.  The funny thing is that the application wil still 95% work but the error message will pop up every time the application is launched and disrupt certain functions that reference that module. Any Suggestions?
 
I have done the following to the system:


1) manually register Dao350.dll by using the Regsvr32.exe program:
2) reinstall of msaccess to ensure all references are correctly registered
3) regsvr32 dao350.dll
4) regsvr32 /u


Thank you in advance,

Chris

  Are you distributing this as a MDE or MDB?  And as Rocki said, you really should be using 3.6

Under references I hav Microsoft DAO 3.6 Object Library selected (c:\program files\Microsoft shared\DAO\dao360...) but for some reason on this one system I keep receiving this message.  My last option is to say reinstall all software, but that seems to dratsic for this issue.
