I am developing an Access 2003 application using an MDB type file.

When I run the application on my PC, the application runs successfully.

When I run the application on another user's machine, I get the following error:

Run-time error '424':
Object required

And if I set a breakpoint in the Access application, I get a different run-time errror of '429'.

Do you know how I can resolve this error?

I notice the following in the Tools -> References:   Available References

Visual Basic for Applications
Microsoft Access 11.0 Object Library
OLE Automation
Microosoft DAO 3.6 Obj Library
Microsoft Active X Data Obj 2.5 Library
Microsoft Excel 11.0 Obj Library
Microsoft Office 11.0 Obj Library
Microsoft Outlook 11.0 Obj Library
PDF Creator

And in the application the following 2 dlls are used:
Private Declare Sub Sleep Lib "kernel32.dll" (ByVal dwMilliseconds As Long)
Private Declare Function RegOpenKeyEx Lib "advapi32.dll" _
    Alias "RegOpenKeyExA" (ByVal hKey As Long, ByVal lpSubKey As String, _
    ByVal ulOptions As Long, ByVal samDesired As Long, _
    phkResult As Long) As Long

We need to see the code around the error line.

On that other computer, when you look up the references, are any listed as missing?

What line of code does the debugger jump to?

It looks like the other user has a missing Office library component. You may need to get hold of the required Office interop.

The last line that the compiler reaches is as follows:
Set msDir = CreateObject("MSDotNet.COMDirectory.Search")
this statement appears in the following Function:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Public Function getUSER(id As String, pswd As String)
On Error GoTo errFunct
Dim msDir
Set msDir = CreateObject("MSDotNet.COMDirectory.Search")   <-- last line before error
...
errFunct:
        If Err.Number <> 0 Then

and the Err.Number generated is 429

Then it would appear that your user does not have that component installed.

(Is it part of .Net Framework or something?)
