A problem occurred while Microsoft Access was communicating with the OLE server or ActiveX Control

P: n/a
Hallo,
I have developed an application in MS Access 2000 (Polish version) under MS
Windows XP prof (also Polish).
Now I would like to run this code on MS Windows XP EN and MS Access XP EN.
I have converted the mdb to version 2002 under MS Access XP Polish and under
this version everything works OK.
The problem starts when I copy the mdb file to Windows XP EN and start it
with MS Access XP EN.
I get following error:
"The expression On Open tou entered as the event property setting produced
the following error: A problem occurred while Microsoft Access was
communicating with the OLE server or ActiveX Control"
Have you experience something like that?
For sure this is not the problem of NAV or bad references (they seemed to be
the same, and the compilation of the project produces no error).
I am dealing with it for almost one month and I am helpless.
Best regards,
Adam Piszczatowski

We had this when we were effected with the msblaster worm. It was the
first of a series of symptoms on various clients, which included out
of stack space errors and inablity to copy things to the clipboard.

Have you run a virus scan over the Windows XP EN box?

Might help if TC's solution is a no go.

I have this same problem. I have an access program devloped on a
chinese windows 2000 on chinese access 2000. It works fine on the
chinese system, but on an english system it gives the "A problem
occurred while Microsoft Access was communicating with the OLE server
or ActiveX Control" error.

This error happens when ever it tries to execute an event procedure. I
figure that somehow it can't find the event procedures because even
though it appears correct on the screen the language encoding makes
them different somehow when running it on a computer with a diferent
language.

Here is how I got it to work on win XP. Mine was written on a chinese
system so I went to the regional and language options and clicked the
checkmark that says install files for east asian languages inder the
languages tab. Then in the advanced tab I made sure the language of
the computer the access file was written on is checked (traditional
chinese) and I selected the same language in the box for default
non-unicode program languages. After restarting it works fine,
changing the default non-unicode language back to english will bring
the errors back.
