Visual Basic (Classic) FAQ

Access Version or Conversion

Err 3706 - Provider not found, may not be installed properly. by MikeCox
Posted: 8 Aug 01

Any number of things can cause this error, but the most common seems to be missing dlls and/or registry entries that Microsoft Jet uses.  Microsoft's Knowledge Base (article Q240377) explains more.  Another cause can be a corrupt or incorrect version of mdac_type.exe.  The following link: http://www.logofont.com/downloads/adofix/ will download a small application that will copy 3 of the most commonly missing dlls to the Windows\System (or WINNT\System32) directory, and create a system registry entry for each.  Copy the Adoupdt.exe and all 3 dlls to C:\Program Files\dll on the problem machine, run Adoupdt.exe, and test your app.  If the problem wasn't cured, check into mdac_type.exe.

Good luck.
