Check,

Your connection, that is all I can say, you are not telling any information
about it.
Because it is so old it is probably OdBC

What program? The first people to contact would be whichever company wrote
the program.
"Cannot open a database from a previous version of your application."
Perhaps they have an updater for the database?

This is happened only on one customer's computer system, before that I
have never got this problem. I just wonder some dll files associated
the MS database missing in my installation or his computer is missing
some system files, but I don't know what files.

Thanks for the help!

See if the following helps:
