Help!.....Oracle 7.2 and VB connectivity

sumedhsumedh Member Posts: 103
i've got an Oracle 7.2 database (yeah i know, pretty old!)......
whenever i try to connect to it through VB, i get the following error message popup:

[code]
Application C:PROGRAM FILESMICROSOFT VISUAL STUDIOVB98VB6.EXE is attempting to call the OCI function .
This function does not exist in ORA72.DLL
Exit this application?
[/code]

If i press the 'NO' button the application works perfectly. But i dont want the above message to come up, 'cause i have to show the software in a presentation.

btw, i'm using the Microsoft ADO Control 6.0 and a DSN to communicate with the Oracle DB.

ne ideas....??
tks. everybody

    Have you tried using an ON ERROR statement to trap whatever is crashing the system?

    Or installing a newer client on the machine running the program. Even a 7.3 client works (I started using Oracle with version 7.3 and Visual Basic 4).

    I do know that a newer client will talk to older database engines (or vice versa).
