Sine my last post about my problem was quite chaotic, I now try again. I have VB 2008 with Microsoft Office 2007 (I am not using a mac - i am using legit windows XP with a newer Office) and have Access 2007 installed and up-to-date.
But when I try to create a database connection (just doing what the wizard tells me to) it says the following:
[ An error occured when creating the new data source:
Could not get type information for 'NAWgegevens.profielkeuzesDataSet'. ]
I have clicked the "try connection" button in the process of making the DataSet and it said it could connect. But now this! I really annoys me and i don't know what to do next. I have the database on C:/vb2008databases/profielkeuzes (profielkeuzes is the name of the database, NAWgegevens is a table in that database - And i only need that table, but still).
Please help me, if someone knows how to solve this problem, let me know.

What happens if you try to create a connection to a different Access database file?
Try creating a new project, then create a new datasource in the new project.
(the above will help isolate the problem. If you you can connect to a different file, and/or can connect from a different project, we will know your VB 2008 installation is OK. If you are unsuccessful, your VB 2008 installation will have to be repaired or redone.
