    I had the exact same problem today....
    Four days ago everything was ok, but today when I tried to start VB I got the same error-message.
    Solution: Copy the file DAO350.DLL from a friend, register it (regsvr32) and it will work again.
    I have a swedish version and then the dll-file usually is found in "c:\Program\Delade filer\Microsoft Shared\DAO\.."

    What happened to the file, who deleted it?
    I can only remember two things that I have done between the two points when it worked and when it did not work:
    * Windows update
    * Uninstall Nokia OC-suit and installation of a newer version of Nokia PC-suit
    One of these things must have ruined the DAO350.DLL

    I hope this will help you.

    You might try changing the reference from DAO 3.5 to DAO 3.6, which is DAO360.dll

    That way you won't need to reregister DAO350.dll.

    MDAC stands for Microsoft Data Access Components; DAO (Data Access Objects) is part of MDAC.  You can download MDAC from here.

    Downloading this is a good idea regardless of what you end up doing.  And to take it a step further, you may want to start using ADO (Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects), included in MDAC.  I think the current version is 2.8.

    try searching the system or system32 in the windows directory for the dll, it may be there.

    Copy and paste the dao350.dll in the microsoft visual studio located in your program files.

    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VB98

    it should work after..
