    Hi

    I have a old software that run over a network that can't find a database, present in the folder. It's a old software made years ago with no install disk, it simply run over the network. At first, it was missing dependancy (dll and ocx) that I did put back in the system32 folder and registered. Now when I open the software, it say : Can't find info.mdb. But the info.mdb file is present in the software folder over the network. Other computers on the network can run the software just fine. I can't find what is missing for the software to work properly. Any ideas ?

    the config if copied is likely looking for a folder not in pc but remotely..
    check that you are able to see network shares.
    permissions for everyone.

    Finally I found visual studio 6 installation files on the server, installed that and it worked. It was missing some components to work properly. Thanks for the help.
