What happened to my dao.dbengine object?

P: n/a
I just wanted to test the behaviour of dao.dbEngine compared to
dao.dbEngine.35 and dao.dbengine.36, but it's not there. It's always been
there before, but it's been years since I looked.

This failed:

set dbe = createobject("dao.dbEngine")

And there is no value in the registry.

I've got A2,A97,A2K,A2K2 and A2K3 installed today. What do I have to do to
get a dao.dbEngine object?

I'm confused, David. Am I totally off base in thinking that .35 is the
3.5* versions and that .36 is the 3.6* version and that there isn't any
unspecified version version. I expect you know that the application
(since Ac2K I believe) has its own functional DBEngine object,
regardless of the existence of a reference to DAO, so if you want to
use dbengine just script DBEngine.WhateverMethodOrPropertyYouWant.

I guess that dao.dbEngine was the .30 object, and when they introduced
..35 they did not repoint dao.dbEngine to .35. I never had Access 95
installed, so I don't know what installed Jet 3.0. Whatever it was,
it has not done so again, because I haven't got the Jet 3.0 object
any more.

I wanted to compare the behaviour of the three objects, which is
why I was looking.
