I have a code with toolbars, which I tried to run it in another PC, but it failed. I get a run time error "Method Addtoolbox of object IGDispatch failed". The line that the code stacks is the last one shown below.

Could you help me please? I work with ArcGIS 9.3 in VBA. Thanks!

 Dim GP As Object
 Set GP = CreateObject("esriGeoprocessing.GpDispatch.1")

'''''  'Set the toolbox
GP.AddToolbox "C:/Program Files /ArcGIS/ArcToolbox/Toolboxes/Conversion Tools.tbx"

Are both systems running a 32 bit version of windows? 64 bit platforms will require C:/Program Files (x86) /ArcGIS/ArcToolbox/Toolboxes/Conversion Tools.tbx instead – Peter Smith Apr 9 '12 at 7:37
The one machine runs 64 bit windows while the other 32 bit version hence I removed the (x86). – Demetris Apr 9 '12 at 16:22
From what I see here, trying removing the space at the end of Files in Program Files. – Peter Smith Apr 10 '12 at 1:01
