i'm trying to install an older ms access 2003 package on new workstations and am getting the following error thrown when running the application:
Error #438: Object doesn't support this property or method
these are legacy programs that were last installed on new systems a year and a half ago. nothing has changed and the new workstations are running the same windows xp pro sp3 (albeit with more recent patches presumably?).
i've checked the mdac (v2.8 sp1 on windows xp sp3 across all machines), the comdlg32.ocx (v6.00.8877 across all machines) and the msado15.dll (v2.81.1132.0 across all machines). they all seem to match up.
the workstations are windows xp running microsoft office 2000 and also have another legacy access97 app running. again, all of this worked just fine a year and a half ago when the last new installation was done and all legacy machines currently run fine with this arrangement.
any thoughts as to what is causing these new errors from a package that previously installed and ran just fine?
