    Unanswered: Can't Send Email -- new computer / os --

    I got a new pc at work and for some reason I’m getting this error when I try and send an email from an / all of my access databases.

    "ActiveX component can't create object"

    I’ve checked my references and rebuilt the database with no luck...?

    There is a few reasons for these problems, these have come straight from the microsoft website

    I know this may seem a little long but here goes

    SYMPTOMS
    When you use Microsoft Access, you receive the following error message:
    ActiveX component can't create object
    This article describes some common causes for this error message and offers methods that you can use to resolve the issue.
    CAUSE
    This behavior can occur if any of the following conditions are true: • Data Access Objects (DAO) is not properly registered.

    -or-
    • One or more references are missing.

    -or-
    • There is a utility database reference that is not valid.

    -or-
    • You do not have the required permissions for required libraries.

    -or-
    • There is a damaged wizard file.

    -or-
    • The Office compatibility script is not run after you install access on the terminal server.

    RESOLUTION
    Cause 1: DAO Is Not Properly Registered
    Resolution
    1. On the computer that hosts Microsoft Windows Terminal Server or the computer on which Microsoft Access is installed, click Start, and then click Run.
    2. Type regsvr32 followed by the path to your DAO file. Enclose this path in quotation marks. For example, to register the DAO 3.5 library, use the following command:
    regsvr32 "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\DAO\DAO350.DLL"

    Cause 2: One or More References Are Missing
    Resolution
    1. Open the database for which you receive the error message.
    2. Click the Modules tab, and then click New.
    3. On the Tools menu, click References.
    4. Examine the list of libraries. If any items are marked as "MISSING," locate the library file and re-associate the reference. Or, click to clear the check box next to the library name.

    Cause 3: There Is a Utility Database Reference That Is Not Valid
    Resolution
    1. Open the database for which you receive the error message.
    2. Click the Modules tab, and then click New.
    3. On the Tools menu, click References.
    4. Click to clear the check box next to any reference to Utility Database or Utility.mda.

    Cause 4: You Do Not Have the Required Permissions for Required Libraries
    Resolution
    • Make sure that users have "read" permissions for all files in the following folders: Operating System Location
    --------------------------------------
    Windows NT, 2000, XP \Winnt\System32
    Windows 95, 98, Me \Windows\System


    • If you cannot grant read permissions, you can use a utility such as FileMon to determine which file or files the users do not have the required permissions to use. To obtain FileMon, visit to the following Sysinternals Web site:
    Sysinternals

    Cause 5: There Is a Damaged Wizard File
    Resolution
    1. Use Windows Explorer to locate the following wizard files: Wzmain80.mde, Wztool80.mde and Wzlib80.mde.
    2. Change the file name extension of each file to "old." For example, change Wzmain80.mde to Wzmain80.old.
    3. Reinstall Access to restore these files.

    Cause 6: Office Compatibility Script Is Not Run After You Install Access on the Terminal Server
    Resolution
    Locate the office compatibility script in the Scripts folder, and then run it.
