Urgent:jet Oledb Initialisation Error

P: 5
Hello there,
I am please requesting for urgent help.
My program is packaged and installed on a pc.I used some data grids and reports on some forms.The problem is that they can only open on the PC I install the package( where I also test the database connections in the data environment).Whenever I install it on another computer and I try to call the forms with the data grids or reports, a message pops up that reads something like "JET OLEDB INITIALISATION ERROR", and a grid comes up which doesnt show any database contents.
Ia doing an exam project and have to make my presentation tommorrow but this is the problem killing me now.Please anyone to help?I will greatly appreciate any assistance.

Check your connection.

That's the disadvantage of using the data environment. If I we're you, change your connection path that is common to all (e.g. C:\mydatabase.mdb).

Hi,

When you have developed a Progarm in VB6, you have to Create a Set-Up Package using P&D Wizard (Or any other 3rd party set-up packages) for your project. and Install them on other systems. This will ensure, all the dll's and ocx required are installed on the new system. without doing this routine, your program may not run.
Or else, Install VB on the other machine also, so that your program runs without set-up package..
