Microsoft Jet

When I run a sample program (DBExplore from Visual C++ 6.0 Blue Book), I get a message "ADO could not find the specified provider". In the code is "provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.3.51". Do I need to load or move some files? Will I need a license to include them with my application?

More than likely, you haven't installed the ADO providers. They come with the ADO SDK. Download the SDK from http://msdn.microsoft.com/data and install the SDK. Then your program should work.

Thank you for your quick response. The web address results in a moved or removed page. I did find what looked to be the download you mentioned but it is over 38 megs. Can I find this on my Visual C++ 6.0 CD? Will I need to do anything afterwards.

I solved the problem by running setup on the VC++ 6.0 CD. The data base check box was grayed. I installed all. Now Microsoft Jet appears in the possible providers and the program works. Thank you.
