VB6 application that connect to MS Access 97 not working in Windows 7


  • Hi All,

    I have a VB6 application (.exe files) that connect to MS Access 97(.mdb files), but do not have the souce code(I'm just a user, not a developer). This application is running find in Windows 98, but then when I upgrade my PC to Windows 7, the application throwing an error when I tried to login.

    The error message stated as follows : "runtime error 429 : ActiveX component can't create object".

    I then do a research and found out that the application might have a reference to Data Access Object 3.5, so I get this DAO350.DLL from my old PC and install it(regsvr32) in my Windows 7.

    Now when I tried to login, it is giving a different error message : "Runtime error 3633 : Can't load DLL : MSJTER35.DLL".

    I did the same thing, took the dll from my old PC and tried to install it on my Windows 7, but however I was greeted with the following error while trying to register the dll into registry : The module "MSJTER35.DLL failed to load. Make sure the binary is stored at the specified path or debug it to check for problems with the binary or dependent .DLL files. The specified module could not be found".

    I hace checked the file and it is exist in the folder and I did run the regsvr32 in a cmd by using run as administrator, but still it did not work. So it might have a problem with the DLL or it might not be compatible with my Windows 7.

    Any advise or suggestion on what I can do to make this application running in my Windows 7?

    Many thanks for the answers.

  • Be aware this is a developers forum, not an enduser forum. 

    I assume a moderator will move this thread to off topic.

    However, be aware the VB6 runtime is made running on W7 but without any guarantee. 

    If you search for msjter35.dll on Google you find some solutions, be aware there are often sites who will force you to there website when they know an question is often asked like this one. So my advice is read it and be sure it is a safe website before you take any advised actions starting directly from those websites.
