Smile Convert DAO Coding to ADO Coding

Hi Guys,

It's been 8 years. I am completely out of programming. Recently wanted to update my self. I tried to open all my projects done in the year 2002 using VB as fronted and MS Access 97 as database and connection thru DAO crystal reports 4.6.

1) My new laptop ( having windows 7) is not allowing to load visual studio 6.

2) I tried to copy all the backups in another desktop computer having windows Xp service pack 2, Office 2000 and visual studio 6 and crystal report 4.6 . It is giving me an error and asking for password for accesing MS Acess data base which i never set.

problem at crystal report1.action = 1.

Here below is the code.

{Private Sub CmdPrint_Click()
CrystalReport1.DataFiles(0) = App.Path & "\misov.mdb"
CrystalReport1.ReportFileName = App.Path & "\AccountList.rpt"
CrystalReport1.WindowState = crptMaximized
CrystalReport1.Action = 1
End Sub}

I require from you the following:

1) How to change from DAO to ADO
2) How to retrieve and run my old softwares in windows xp, access 2000, crystal reports 4.6?
3) How to migrate to the latest version with out doing major changes.

Your advises are highly appreciable.

Best regards,
