PRB: FileMon Shows That DAO360.dll Fails to Load MSJet49.dll, MSJet48.dll, and Other MSJetxx.dll Files

View products that this article applies to.


When you use FileMon or another utility to monitor file activity, if an application uses DAO 3.6x with Jet 4.0, you receive the following error message:
for the following dynamic-link libraries (DLLs):
However, you also notice that MSJET40.DLL is loaded successfully.

This behavior is by design to allow future Jet 4 functionality to be included into DLLs that are named incrementally. For example, a new version of Jet 4 can be implemented in a DLL named MSJET41.DLL. DAO 3.60 then automatically uses the new version of Jet 4, MSJET41.DLL.

Microsoft Development has found that it does not significantly impact DAO 3.60 or Jet 4.0 performance to load these DLLs.

  4. In FileMon, click the magnifying glass icon on the toolbar to start a new FileMon trace.
  5. In Visual Basic, add an intrinsic Data Control from the toolbox to Form1. Data1 is created by default.
  6. Set the properties of Data1 as follows:

    DatabaseNameSelect the NWind.MDB that comes with Visual Basic
    RecordSourceSelect Employees from the drop-down list box

  7. In FileMon, click the magnifying glass icon on the toolbar to end the FileMon trace.
