RunTime Error 3706

RunTime Error 3706

Hi Guys

I have a huge problem. I have an older version of an application that I
installed on my PC now when I uninstall it and install a newer version I
get this error.

Its a Visual Basic Application that uses Oracle as its database and I am
trying to connect via ADO.

The old installer was InstallShield and I am now using Visual Studio
Installer. The problem is that when you unistall the older version of
this product then it removes certain files and I have no idea what these
files are.

Now when I run the code, it says that it cant find the Provider or it
may not be installed properly...

Private mcnWrite As ADODB.Connection

mcnWrite.CursorLocation = adUseClient
mcnWrite.Open "Provider=msdaora.1;Data Source=MyDB;USER

I have installed MDAC 2.6, MDAC 2.7, MDAC 2.5, MDAC 2.0, MS DAO 3.6 but
I still keep getting this error, I have tried other connections but the
same error keeps coming up.

If I put the old installation back on then the code runs fine....

Can someone plz help me???
