    using DAO without MS Access installed

    I have a problem that I cannot figure out.
    I am trying to run a program I created that uses dao on a machine without Microsoft Access or any other DBMS application of any sort. Is this supposed to work.

    I am trying to run it on a machine with Windows 2000 and cannot run it.

    It works fine on the computer that I developed it but I have Access 97 installed on it along with Visual Studio 6.0. The machine I am trying to run it has neither MS Access or Visual Studio. I tried installing MDAC 2.7 and still nogo.

    Any suggestions?

    Well, it sounds like you are trying to access a database that doesn't excist. You need to install a database that supports DBMS or change your program.

    the database exists

    the database itself does exist...
    the file does at least .... The program however does not access it. My question is...once again...

    Can you run an MFC application that uses the CDao classes without actually installing the DBMS application (in this case Access 97)?
