    Unanswered: Access 2003 & MSOWCF.DLL

    I Just installed access 2003 and i am getting the following Err msg :

    The application you are attempting to use has a reference it cannot resolve to an object, type library, DLL, or external database. Either the object, type library, DLL, or database was deleted or its name has changed. Examine the Available references list in the References dialog box in the Visual Basic Editor (Tools menu) to determine if any action is required. If you did not create this application, contact the programmer or administrator of the system.
    If the reference listed in the Available references list is preceded with "MISSING:" clear the check box to remove the reference if it is no longer required. If you still need to use the reference, clear the check box entry for "MISSING: <referencename>" in the Available references list, and then create a new reference to the file using the Browse... button. If this is an installed database application, you may need to reinstall or repair the application.


    does anyone know if the name was changed for 2003 ?

    A few thoughts from a support perspective.
    Does a search for the DLL in question find it on your PC ?
    You stated you had just installed the application. Have you checked for updates/service packs on it.

    Keep us posted.

    I unchked the ref and searched for it. I haven't done any updates or service packs because i am worried it would affect other users - is this worry unfounded?
