 DAO and non-Access tables

In trying to use CDaoDatabase to open a dBase III format file, I get the
error message "Couldn't find installable ISAM."  MSXBSE35.DLL is in the
WinNT\System32 directory, the registry key
(HKLM\Software\Microsft\Jet\3.5\Engines) shows the correct path, and I
reinstalled the DLL in case it was corrupt, all of no avail. If I try to
open the table in Access97 via Get External Data/Link, all is well and I
can open the table. But programmatically, the operation fails.

I double-checked the syntax of the Open() call against the docs, and all
looks OK.

Am I blind? Have I missed something in the docs? What's the magic
incantation to make it work?
