    Run-time error '429'


    Hi,

    My app ( VB5 + DAO + InstallShield Express for inst.) works fine in several
    machines. But in some installations, I have this problem :

    Run-time error '429'
    ActiveX component can't create object

    In this case, I run : REGSVR32 DAO350.DLL /U and REGSVR32 DAO350.DLL. This
    fix the problem...

    What could be wrong in my installation ?

    Regards.

    Could be a few things. My gut (which has increased significantly lately ) says the
    file(s) could have been in use during the initial installation. Since it works on several
    machines, it *may* not be something wrong with the installer. The reason I say "may" is
    because those machines may have already had the necessary files on them.

    The easiest way to determine if it's an installer problem (something you can fix) or a
    system-specific issue (something you have less control over) is to wipe a hard drive
    clean, install Windows, and then install your application. I've found this to be the most
    reliable way to ensure you're installing everything correctly. If it works on a virgin
    Windows machine, then it *should* work on most others.

    Not a whole lot of help, I know. Another thought: are you sure you told InstallShield
    that DAO350.DLL is a self-registering file? It could very well be that you're not
    installing it correctly on *any* machine, but some of them were already set up with DAO
    files.

    Hello Gregory,

    I'll work using your comments. At a first moment I can see that DAO350.DLL
    is not treated by Installshield Express as self-registering file.

    Thank you very much !
