OPENING VISUAL BASIC 6.0, DAO350.DLL, And "unexpected Error; Quitting"Mar 19, 2007
I did a web search already at some sites including Microsoft, but I have not found a soultion yet.Problem: CANNOT OPEN VISUAL BASIC 6.0; Says "Unexpected error; quitting"Machine/Software: OS: XP Media Center (although system info says XP Professional 5.1.2600 Service Pack2 Build 2600)PC: Acer AspireE36SW:Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0 Enterprise Edition
History:1. Could not open visual basic 6.0. I got the an error that the DAO350.DLL could not be found.
2. So following some suggestions from the web:a) Renamed old DAO350.DLL as DAO350.DLLOLDb) I took this file from Visual Studio Disk 1 and copied it into the C:Program FilesCommon FilesMicrosoft SharedDAOc) Regsvr32 "C:Program FilesCommon FilesMicrosoft SharedDAODAO350.DLL"d) Then I got a successful message that it registerede) It did not work. When I tried to open the visual basic 6.0 now I get:"Unexpected error; quitting" message.
I even loaded the component checker 2.0 as suggest via microsoft website to look up the Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC). (see Article ID: 304230 and 301202 on [URL]..It says MDAC 2.8 SP1 ON WINDOWS XP SP2. I am not sure what this MDAC does for me, but I looked at it anyways.
