I am trying to create just a normal object (adodb.connection) and when i try to do so, i get the error "ActiveX component can't create object". so when i look in the event viewer, this is the corresponding error:

Failed on creation from object context: CoCreateInstance  (ProgId: ADODB.Connection.1.5) (CLSID: {00000514-0000-0010-8000-00AA006D2EA4})     (Microsoft Transaction Server Internals Information: File: d:\viper\src\runtime\context\ccontext.cpp, Line: 1292)

any ideas? i greatly appreciate any help.

Reinstall the ADO... this will fix any problems with the ActiveX Database Object.
