I could really use some help. I am not the most knowledgable and would appreciate any guidance... 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"
OS: XP Media Center (although system info says XP Professional 5.1.2600 Service Pack2 Build 2600)
PC: Acer AspireE36
SW:Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0 Enterprise Edition
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.DLLOLD
b) I took this file from Visual Studio Disk 1 and copied it into the
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\DAO
c) Regsvr32 "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\DAO\DAO350.DLL"
d) Then I got a successful message that it registered
e) It did not work. When I tried to open the visual basic 6.0 now I get:
"Unexpected error; quitting" message.
WHAT DO I DO PLEASE?
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 http://support.microsoft.com/kb/304230 and htpp://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=301202))
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.
