When I try to open any ChemFinder database, I get the following error message:
"Can't open a database created with a previous version of your application"
This problem typically occurs when a user has two dao dll files (different versions) and Microsoft Office 97 installed. Do a Find File for dao36.dll. If you have MS Office 97, you should not have a dao36.dll. You have a few options to correct the problem.
1. Rename the dao36.dll to dao36.old
2. Upgrade to Microsoft Office 2000 and use MS Access 2000 to convert the .mdb file from the database you are trying to open to the 2000 format.
3. Upgrade to the latest version of ChemFinder which can deal with DAO 3.6. (Some versions of ChemFinder did not support DAO 3.6.)
