file FPDTC.dll Version 1.0 is missing


I keep getting the following error when trying to open a Microsoft Access  database
"Your Microsoft Access database or project contains a missing or broken  
reference to the file FPDTC.dll Version 1.0"  
I am running Microsoft Access 2003 runtime, and I have this no problem with windows XP only with windows vista

 Any ideas or pointers on how to fix this problem would be much appreciated.  
regards Karel

Those are the Microsoft FrontPage Design Time controls ... you almost certainly don't need this reference.

If you can get to the source code for the database, remove the reference to that file, then click Debug - Compile.

If you can't get to the source code, then you're pretty much out of luck. I'm not sure you can deploy that .dll file, so I'm not sure that you could simply install that file on the Vista box (and even if you could, it'd not be the right way to do this).

Simply but I think it will be enough, I will test it out on windows vista.

Is there some reason you scored this a B? It seems as if you are taking one of the pieces of advice I gave you, which generally would deserve an A.

Sorry, I am not using experts-exchange for such a long time, so next time I should answer it with A.

If I can change it, let me know.
