Can't find file DAO350.dll - How do I install and register?

VB6 environment was working fine. Today I received the error. A dialog box is prompting me to install Nuance PaperPort 12.msi. I use Adobe but I believe Nuance had been previously installed during a Brother printer installation. How do I most easily download, install and register(?) the DAO350.dll?

I don't believe that DAO350.dll has anything to do with PaperPort 12. That said, if you want to download the PP12.1 installer, read this EE article:
PaperPort 12 - Free Upgrade to Version 12.1

I just checked a machine with PP12.1 Pro on it and with TWAIN and WIA drivers for two Brother devices — the MFC-7820N and MFC-9840CDW. DAO350.dll is not in the PP12 unpacked setup files and not in its installation folder. In fact, I checked the entire hard drive and it doesn't exist. This MS support article may help

I too found it hard to believe that Nuance had anything to do with the VB error. The printer uninstall was the only recent system change I could point to. It was an odd error, as soon as I started VB it complained about Nuance.

Thanks for your help. I will accept your solution.

BTW - I simply ended up reinstalling VB6. Everything works fine now.
