Can Not Find DAO350.dll When Launching VB6

DAO is ancient crap (obsolete now -- doesn't even work on x64 platforms, from the Win 3.x days), and it's included with MDAC, so I'd suggest updating your MDAC, or to move to a dev environment that isn't over 10 years old. You can get MS VB Express 2008 SP1 for free, and lots more, over here.

Agreed, although if you're stuck with 6.0 for something specific you can put the .dll in question (if you can find the right version) in the same folder as the .exe, and create a <executablename>.exe.local file in that folder. It'll load any .dll files in that directory before attempting to load them from anywhere else, no matter what. This doesn't work on Vista or higher, but your screenie shows XP, so it would work there.
