Default The data binding dll, "VB5DB.DLL", could not be loaded.

I get the following error message when running my executable vb app on Terminal Server:

The data binding dll, "VB5DB.DLL", could not be loaded.

This error occurs when I run a procedure that sets a recordset using the following method:

db as database
rs as DAO.recordset

I also have the DAO object on my form (not sure if this is necessary, but that's what I got from Microsoft's Knowledge base). I wasn't sure if they were saying you need the vb code as well as the object. Any help is appreciated.

If you have a reference set to the proper DAO object library, there
is no need for having the standard datacontrol on the form. The
obvious question is, how did you install the app on the target
computer, and is VB5DB.DLL in the install package?
