Physical database not found and Access runtime files

Physical database not found and Access runtime files

Physical database not found and Access runtime files


  I found that the VB6 packaging wizard doesn't pick up my Access runtime files during packaging. When I run my program (created with VB6 and Crystal Report 8.5) and I tried to preview my report, it gave a "Physical database not found" and "File could not opened because library Pdirdao.dll cannot be found".

  For "Physical database not found" error, in my case, the database was pointing in the correct location. You can refer to the article in crystal care technical support number c2007727 for more information on this.

  For the latter error, I found it strange to be prompting for a 16 bit file when my environment is 32 bit. Refer to crystal care acticle c2007461.

  Finally after searching all over the place, a website commented that the error prompted is actually complaining of its 32-bit counterpart. I have forgotten to include the 3 files that Access needs in the package (p2bdao.dll, p2irdao.dll, p2ctdao.dll).

  After putting the files in Windows/System and restarting my PC, everything works!!

  Hope this tip will help you. :)
