I had similar problem with VB5 and CRP 6.0 when i did a setup wiz on my app. my
app was not running on other machines, where i did the install. i later found
out that the VB setup wiz doesnt include certain files (mainly the
crpeaut32.dll) when i built the setup, even though this file was showing in the
listbox with check box. i deselected it and selected again which later properly
included crpeaut32.dll. may be this problem still exists. the pdbdao.dll (and a
whole list of other p*.dll files) is required to run crp.
