Can't read MS Access databse

P: n/a
Hello there,

I have an application (c#) that uses MS Access to store the data. The
application install and works fine but in one windows 2k box (with
SP4) the application simple can't read the database. I really don't
have a clue about the problem. I've re-installed the pc with every
thing and it still doesn't let my application read the MS access
database. The same database is been used by other users without a
problem.

Any idea, please I'm very upset with this situation.

Thanks

Is Jet installed on that system? Or whatever DLLs C# requires to read an Access MDB?

Yes, everything is in place, even the last update for the jet engine.
The thing is that all other installations (win 2k or xp) are working
fine. The error is like the file (*.mdb) doesn't exist.
