When I start PR-Tracker I get the following error message:

Error 429: ActiveX component can't create object
Database Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0
PR-Tracker 5.10.0145
PRBASE:OpenProjectDb ProjectDB:OpenDb prtracker


The error means that you have a corrupt MDAC (Microsoft Data Access Components) installation on your computer. Unfortuanately MDAC corruptions aren't always easy to fix. PR-Tracker install MDAC 2.5 assuming there isn't already a higher version of MDAC installed on your computer. PR-Tracker will work with MDAC 2.5 or higher. To fix the corruption the easiest thing to try is to install the latest version of MDAC. If that doesn't work download and run the MDAC checker from http://www.microsoft.com/data/download.htm#CCinfo and see it can detect the problem.

The most common MDAC corruption that we come across is a DLL that is installed in the wrong place. Some MDAC DLLs are supposed to be installed in the C:\Program Files\Commom Files\SYSTEM\ADO folder. Make sure that none of those DLLs are installed somewhere else on the computer. Funduc software makes a Windows utility called Duplicate File Finder which can help track these duplicate DLLs down. See http://www.funduc.com/dupfiles.htm


I just installed MDAC 2.8. That fixed the problem.

Or download the appropriate Jet 4.0 version from Microsoft http://support.microsoft.com/kb/239114/

or download MDAC Repair Ultility program to re-register your MDAC http://www.macropool.com/en/download/mdac.html
