error "Could not find installable ISAM" when accessing database

Win 98

Form Filler


After some installation (MS Office2000 ?) it was impossible to connect to database table using ISAM. There was installed on computer MS Jet 3.5 a 4.0 and DAO 3.5 a DAO 3.6. If is not necessary usage of DAO3.6 delete file /Common files/Microsoft Shared/DAO/dao360.dll. Now it works.

It's not perfect solution, problem is probably somewhere in registry, e.g. in Software/Microsoft/Jet/4.0(i 3.5)/Engines/SystemDB is system.mdb value but file exist as windows/system/system.mdw. This file references also DAO 3.6 help.
