Help: Error 429 ActiveX component cannot create object

Help: Error 429 ActiveX component cannot create object

Post by Brian John Mrkonj » Mon, 02 Mar 1998 04:00:00


I have just started to learn Visual basic. As a first
exercise, I thought I would explore the sample apps
that are bundled with VB 5.0 Professional. I attempted
to run the "Biblio" application but received the followng

  Runtime error '429'.

  ActiveX component can't create object.

It is triggered by the following line located in the
ListTitleAuthors sub procedure:

Set myDb = DBEngine.Workspaces(0).OpenDatabase(sDir & "\biblio.mdb")

This error occurs when I try to run many of the other sample
applications. I have verified that the reference to the DOA exists
within my VB environment by checking the References option under
the Project menu item.

I am runing NT 4.0 and VB Professinal 5.0 . If anyone can
shed some light on this I would appreciate it.
