 Run-time error '52': Bad file name or number

Hi,

I have an application built using VB 6.0 SP3 and MS Access 97.

Some customers have complained on receiving Run-time error '52': Bad file
name or number
They can install the application and get past the welcome screen, but on
clicking the Open dialog or New dialog they get the above error. Then the
app. just crashes.

We have tried to reproduce the error, but to no effect.
Any ideas or help much appreciated.

Is it possible there is some file that is required but was not distributed as
part of the install? Can you put some code at that point to try to find out
what file is being sought?

Perhaps if you post the code at the approximate point of failure someone can
help.

What version of the MDAC are you installing on the clients?
Version 2.1 does not include components required by Access 97 Database
access.
