    Exclamation Windows 7 Compile creates RT 430?

    I have a program compiled in windows 7 which keeps delivering the Runtime 430 automation error when executing it on XP and older OS's. This error is known to be related to the incorrect MDAC version. If I compile this same program, with the same options, on an XP box, this error does not occur.

    From what I understand Windows 7 uses WDAC while XP and older use MDAC.

    So how do we use ado.db connections for SQL in windows 7 while being able to compile the program so the exe will correctly function in windows XP?

    Thanks

    Welcome to VBForums

    If you have installed SP1 for Windows 7, this kind of issue is expected.

    There is a link explaining how you can fix it in the "General" section of our Database Development FAQs/Tutorials (at the top of the Database Development forum)

    Re: Windows 7 Compile creates RT 430?

    ok although I found the article, the tlb files there will not register in windows 7, or I have become a moron whereas registering a file is concerned.

    Can someone give me a step by step to register these tlb that will actually work? I have tried about 5 different things I have looked up and all failed.
    I dont think that the ms supplied tlb would be bogus, any particular way to do it in windows 7?
