Default VB executable not working on all computers

I am a novice with VB6. I developed an EXE project using VB6's Data Project. The purpose of the program I developed was to give employees in our office a means to access and view data from on old FoxPro database without editing it. It set up a designer called DataEnvironment1. I connected DataEnvironment1 to the old FoxPro database (.DBF is the extension). I added a datagrid and a few labels all of which retrieve data from DataEnvironment1. I then packaged this project using VB's Package and Deployment Wizard.

When I install this program on different desktops, it works fine on some computers, but others get errors saying it can't bind to fields on the database.

Does anyone know why this works on some computers and not others?
