When I try connection to an INFORMIX database using an ODBC connection (driver= intersolv 3.01 32bit informix)
everything goes just fine.. I can see it in the data view in Visual InterDev, but when i try

OBJdbConn.Open Session("DataConn_ConnectionString") in a page the server just says

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80004005'

[INTERSOLV][ODBC Informix driver][Informix]Unable to load locale categories.

anyone know what to do??

I proposed an answer to something similar in another topic area.  Does the following help?

It may be due to user registry setup.  When you're querying with Visual Interdev, your Informix config info is stored in the
Registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Informix\ENVIRONMENT - this may not be set up for the user that the web is accessing Informix as (possibly, although this is drawing from experience of something else that's similar).

It is possible that even if you have everything set up correctly, for some reason it will still be trying to access as the default user.

Try copying the Informix keys from the above location to the default user (HKEY_USERS\.Default) so you will have a directory something like  HKEY_USERS\.Default\Software\Informix\ENVIRONMENT\INFORMIXDIR etc.

Also, the data source should be set up as a system DSN not a user DSN, for the same sort of reason...
