  1. Thanks. It seems removing DAO also upsets ATI's TrueVector program. At least, it gave me a windows error after the uninstall. I did the Search as you suggested. The solution for me was to download the DAO / MDAC update from ATI's website, then run the install to create the /ATI/Support directory. Then, I reran the install program in the /Support directory (which UNINSTALLED the DAO program) and noted the directory where the program put the dao.msi file (for me, it was Documents and Settings / Jim / Local Settings / Temp / _is1A7. I copied the files to a different directory, then reran the DAO / MDAC to install DAO, then copied the dao.msi files to the folder Creator is looking for when I get the error message. Whew. There may be an easier way, but this worked. Also, I noted that when I installed MS Office, it said I had an earlier version of Access and recommended I delete it and update it with the latest version. I did not have any Office applications, so I think this too is related to ATI's DAO.msi file screwup.
  2. On a brand new PC running Windows MCE 2005, I tried to install Creator 8. After the CD installation is complete and upon reboot, once I start Creator 8 i get the following: "Error 1706. No valid source could be found for the product DAO. The Windows installer cannot continue." Another window pops up asking for the source location of dao.msi. I have searched my hard drive and the CD for this file and cannot find it. Note: The title states Doa.msi. It should be Dao.msi. It seems there's a problem with ATI's DAO / MDAC installer and Roxio. If you remove the DAO application from Windows (Control Panel / Add Remove Programs...), this problem will go away. But, you won't be able to use the Library feature of ATI's Multimedia Center application.
