Access 2000 Error:  Couldn't find installable ISAM

Hi,
I have been struggling with this all week and all the solutions that I have found online doesn't seem to work.  I have a VB6 application that connects to an Access 2000 database using DAO.  The application compiles, but when I try to run the application, I get the error:  Couldn't find installable ISAM [3170].

I've tried reinstalling Access, registering the msrd3x40 and msrd2x40 dll files and still no change.  I would appreciate any other options, I have an urgent change to make to this app, but currently cannot test my changes because of this error.

Thanks.

I fixed my problem by installing Visual Studio 6.0 Service Pack 6.
