Software using .mdb file as database
Posted 2010-11-11 09:39

I have a software on windows using mdb file as database. I try to use it with Cross over and can launch the soft. There is no connection with the main mdb file and no data can be read or write to the mdb file.

This is a part of the installshield report on windows. Maybe you can help me and you know what kind of bottle I need to set :

CMDialog ActiveX Control DLL
MDAC 2.7 Sp1 (English)
MFCDLL Shared Library - Retail Version
Microsoft (R) C Runtime Library
Microsoft Common Controls 2 ActiveX Control DLL
Microsoft Component Category Manager Library
Microsoft Hierarchical FlexGrid Control
Microsoft OLE 2.40 for Windows NT(TM) and Windows 95(TM) Operating Systems
Microsoft Standard Data Formating Object DLL
Microsoft Winsock Control DLL
OLE DB 2.1
Visual Basic Virtual Machine
Windows Common Controls ActiveX Control DLL

Thanks fot any help

To start with, I recommend installing "Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) 2.8", "Windows OLE Components", "Microsoft Visual Basic 6 Service Pack 6 runtime", and "Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0 Redistributable", all of which you can find in CrossOver's software installer, listed under Runtime Support Components.  Those seem to correspond to items on your list.

You'll also want to be using a win98-type bottle, too.
