VB + MS access = Package

VB + MS access = Package

VB + MS access = Package

 I have created a polling software using VB and MS access database as the back end ( using ADODC connection). I have to install this VB software on other systems (.exe file) .Other systems do not have VB installed. There is a tool named package and deployment in microsoft VB , where in the database and the software can be packed together and installed in other systems, which can be accessed even though VB is not installed.
When i tried to do this, i got an error - "Run time error 91, object variable not found ".
Can you help with this? How do i install just the .exe on other systems ?

RE: VB + MS access = Package


And welcome to Tek-Tips.

If you have a .exe, then you do not need VB loaded on the PC running your software.

You would, however, need the libraries that you are referencing, loaded on that PC, including MS ActiveX Data Objects n.m Library.

Also take a look at MSKB - do a search on MDAC. If the target computers don't have a VB installation (and they do not need one to run the .exe), you still may have to install the appropriate Microsoft Data Access Component version.

Are you using late binding?  If so, the PDW won't autodetect file dependencies.
