    Database error when installing ME2

    Hi there all.

    Just finished installing the carputer into my 89 Celica turbo, but when I tried to install the new Media Engine tonight, I received the following error in the debug.log:
    An error occured in modDB.InitDB : [Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access 97 Driver] Can't open database '(unknown)'. It may not be a database that your application recognizes, or the file may be corrupt. : Error number -2147467259

    This error occurred immediately after I pressed the OK button saying for Media Engine to update the database (after selecting my media folder and playlist folder).
    I read through the threads and found others with the same error number,
    Media Engine under XPe
    Jim22 needed to install JET4.0 and MDAC, so I did the same, but it made absolutely no difference.
    It's running Windows XP pro, but I have fiddled with it using XPLite, and might have removed something.
    Any ideas?

    Thanks all. This place has been a source of inspiration and unending awe at the amount of talent that's out there in the programming and car PC enthusiast community!

    Try installing XP Pro, then install MediaEngine and see if that works. Next try using XPLite to remove stuff. MediaEngine relies on a lot of stuff that comes with windows so yes I bet that you have removed something.
    Get MediaEngine !!!
