Win 7 ms access db not running in win xp

I created a ms Access database in access 2003 on a win 7 box.  when i try and run it on a win xp box i get a nondescript error referencing APSPrevControls.dll.

And because that was not enough of a challenge i had up graded to access 2010 on the win 7 box.  save the db as a 2003 format, with the same result.

On the lame, but upside, the upgrade to office 2010 was coincidental, not because of the db problem.  But the additional variables certainly didn't help me.

any inside would be appreciated

<<APSPrevControls.dll>>

 You've made a reference in your app to this .DLL and it's not on the XP machine.  It's a 3rd party DLL and not part of Access.

Your choices are:

1. Install the same software on the XP machine (looks like it's part of Sonic Solutions software).

2. Modify your app to work without it.

Jim.
