When you attempt to open a non-local Microsoft Access repository database in Visual Component Manager (VCM) by specifying the share name that points to it, the following error message is generated on Microsoft Windows 95 and Microsoft Windows 98 computers:
If Visual Studio 6.0 Service Packs 3 or 4 have been applied, a dialog box with the following message is displayed:
Method '~' of object '~' Failed
Error: Installing Model File
Do not specify a share name in the Open Access Type Database dialog box. Map a network drive on the local computer to the share on which the Access database file (.mdb) is located, and then point to the mapped drive and folder that contains the database to open the non-local Access repository.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a bug in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.
