    Unhappy Unanswered: provider not found error

    I have got an error "Provider Cannot be found It may not be properly Installed" when trying to run vb/ms-access application on both NT Server and windows'98 OS. i've installed mdactyp.exe and mdactype_sp1.exe but dint succeed. On 98 machine, i've installed dcom98.exe also. What are the possible reasons for this error? Can anybody help me?

    Either Provider is a program that has not been installed or your error is a VB error that I know nothing about. What version of VB? Or is it just VBA in Access? As well, what version of Access?

    The application is in VB6 and the database is Access 2000. even in windows 98 machine, in most systems, i did not face any problem after installing mdac (and dcom98 as a last option). But what else could be the reason? Can it be problem with the registering of controls? I suppose that Provider not found error would be with the problem with database. can reinstalling of OS help me in this regard?
    Thanks and regards
