How to load DAO objects on runtime, open database and select the DAO version

Big news for VB5.0 & 6.0 DAO/JET Access97 database application makers:
Capacity to select the DAO/JET engine version on runtime!
This is my new invention how to load a "installed" version of DAO in
runtime. Also this shows how to use DAO as runtime created object! Tested
this in VB5.0 And VB 6.0
The coal why to develop this is solve a potential DAO 3.5X App break when a
new install of Office 2000/2002 removes the registry entries of older DAO's.

System.mdw file is in effect and second sample for unprotected databases.
See file: Readthis.txt in the zip, The instructions and exceptional are
