Run-Time ERROR '429'

P: n/a
I recently re-installed Windows 98 SE. Now when I try to run a form
that calls a module that writes to the database I get:

Run-Time error '429'
ActiveX component can't create object.

I have tried all of the suggestions that MicroSoft recommends:
Microsoft Knowledge Base Article - 296205.

Can anyone think of another reason that this is failing me?

Does it make sense to flash my BIOS with the latest version?

Thanks,

Mike

If your BIOS won't accept big hard disks, then flashing can
probably fix that. The BIOS is only used at start-up,
to do the startup checks, load the boot drive, and do PCI
and PNP allocation. It won't have any effect on anything
after your PC has started.

What you have is an installation problem. Either Office.
or something else, is not installed correctly.
