VB6 / DAO 3.6 / run time error: Couldn't find installable ISAM

Hi Experts,

I've got 3 VB6 applications all using DAO 3.6.

They were working happily 3 months ago.
I haven't made any changes to the source code during that time.

Now when I run the codes from the VB6 development environment I get this run time error:

Couldn't find installable ISAM.

The .exe files that were built 3 months ago run without the error.

Regards,
Leigh

Sometimes the data connections are mis configured (Old settings )...so check the Connect property.

A simple PC restart may solve this problem

Just for the record:

I have recompiled one of apps.
Running the .exe does not have the "Couldn't find installable ISAM" problem.
