MS ADO 2.5 Library/NT4/ VB 6
Posted on 1999-12-08
I have objtained sample VB progs from MS
,namely ado25xml.exe , a zip file.
"This sample requires Visual Basic 6.0 and Active Data Objects (ADO) 2.5. It can be run under Windows 98, Windows NT 4.0, or Windows 2000. ADO 2.5 ships with Windows 2000 and can also be downloaded from Universal Data Access Online . "
I went and downloaded and installed
MDAC 2.1 which I believe contains
ADO 2.5 Library. I reboot. I also got CC.exe
which runs a check on what version
of ADO/ODBC is on PC. I reports
that my NT4 box has V 22.214.171.12403.3 GA
-this is the latest and greatest.
In VB6 I open the ADOXML.vbp and
try to make the VB executeable
The MAKE run report an error:
"Can't find project or library"
Then VB displays the Reference
ListBox where I can read the entry
"Missing : ActiveX Data Objects 2.5 Library." The path associated with
this Library is bogus, namely , it
begins C:\Program Files\DevStudio\
Program File .....\ , --- a non
I try to browse to a real directory,
but the message persists.
QUESTION, What file am I looking for
for this REFERENCE
? Is this library named MSADO25.DLL
I did a search of the HD for
'MSADO*' and find
in c:\P F\Common Files\System\ado\
Only the last file is dated at
the time of the install of MDAC 2.1
Many thanks for your time
