    Need help for "Run-time error 3170 Couldn't find installable ISAM"


    Hello All:

    I had VB6/DAO 3.6 application. After install it on destination laptop (wni95)
    I had "Run-time error '3170', Couldn't find installable ISAM".

    I know it occur while the application call a DATA1 control which Connection
    setup "Access 2000". (If I change the property to Access instead of Access
    2000 the error was gone but I have to use Access 2000).


    I have included DAO 360, MDAC 2.5.1 and Jet 4.0.1 in the Install (Using Installshield
    Objects) but still have the error.

    What files (ISAM files) was missing on my install?

    Thanks in advance.

    Has nothing to do with ISAM. I guess you want to open an DAO database using
    ADO without using an ODBC DSN.

    I had the same error message/problem. I only got this to work by setting
    some properties (I forgot the names) and then opening the connection. An
    example can be found in a .txt file in the Visual Studio directory. The online
    help is of no use in this case.

    connection.properties("user name") = "value"
    connection.open
