Unable to use Access database aliases
Posted on 1998-05-11
I installed the C++ Builder Professional edition on my machine alongside my Delphi 3.01 Client/Server. This was not a good idea, as it screwed up my Interbase configuration.
I have therefore re-installed Delphi 3 C/S, and my Interbase setup is now OK. Unfortunately, I am now no longer able to use my Access database alias.
I define the alias using the driver type MSACCESS, but when I try to open the database connection, I get the following error message:
"Cannot load an IDAPI Service library"
I am using Windows NT 4.0 (option pack 3), and I have Access 97, DAO 3.0 and DAO 3.5 installed.
What do I do to get around this problem?
Thanks in advance for any input,
