Msado15.dll

P: n/a
Hi. I have a windows 2000 machine running Access XP. whenever Iopen my
database on this machine, it says that I am missing msado15.dll. I am
not sure whether the dll is installed and just not being referenced
properly. Could someone tell me the references that I should have
checked to get the right dll? the database was designed on a Windows XP
machine running Access XP. I do not get this error on the development
machine.

thanks

Colin

The default "Ado" in Windows XP is MDAC 2,8. The reference made in your app.
is probably version 2.8, but on the 2000 machine you have a previous
version. Either you change the reference to an earlyer version or you
download and install MDAC 2.8 on your 2000 machine (probably the correct
thing to do) Download MDAC 2.8 here:

Correction to my previous message:

Default in Windows XP is MDAC 2.7.

Hi again. I have downloaded MDAC 2.8. Is this file self registering or
do I have to add references to all the DLL's that are used in my app?

Thank you

You dont have to register the DLL file, but you need to make a reference to
the librarys you are using, like Microsoft Activex Data object 2.8 Library.
if you are using ADO!
