KB00006 - Unable to initialize DAO/Jet db engine


This error can occur as Stickies starts. It's as Stickies tries to use the database library built into Windows.


Something must have gone wrong with a database part of Windows. I've not been able to see this error myself - Stickies runs ok on a clean install of Windows. I'd like to pay credit to Bill Pollack who discovered this problem, and then also sent through the solution.


That will get rid of the message.

This solution will also solve other error messages which can occur around DAO - eg if you're asked for the installation package "DAO.msi"
