ADO not working on NT4 when compiled under W2K

Whenever I compile a VC6 project under W2K that makes use of ADO (via #import), it won't run under NT4/Win9x (But does under W2K). Any way to solve this problem?

To be more specific on the error, it fails on a CreateInstance call to any ADO object.

I'm sure this is pretty common, but I haven't been able to find a work around anywhere yet.

0x80004002: E_NOINTERFACE

No such interface supported

Here's the code.. It dies on the recordset creation, not the connection:

      _ConnectionPtr pConn;
      _RecordsetPtr pRS;
      HRESULT hr;

      CString str2;
      hr=pConn.CreateInstance(__uuidof(Connection));
      if (FAILED(hr))
      {
            str2.Format("Could not create Connection object: Error %x",hr);
            AfxMessageBox(str2);
            return;
      }

      hr=pRS.CreateInstance(__uuidof(Recordset));
      if (FAILED(hr))
      {
            str2.Format("Could not create Recordset object: Error %x",hr);
            AfxMessageBox(str2);
            return;
      }

I think it's supposed to be _Connection
hr=pConn.CreateInstance(__uuidof(_Connection));

#import <c:\program files\common files\system\ado\msado15.dll> no_namespace rename ( "EOF", "adoEOF" )

hr=pConn.CreateInstance(__uuidof(_Connection)); // doesn't work.

The connection object loads fine. The recordset object is the one having the problem.

Also, if I change the second one to:

hr=pRS.CreateInstance(__uuidof(_Recordset));

I get an Error: 80040154 (Class not registered)

Windows 2000 installs a new version of ADO (version 2.5) which is obviously not normally present on earlier versions of Windows. You'll have to write an installer for your app which installs the correct version of ADO onto the user's system.
