I've instaled ADO 2.5 in a Win 98  machine.

All works ok form VB and VBA, but i can't get it to work in Visual C++.

I'm using a _ConnectionPtr variable but create instance allways fails.

the follwing code allways fails

_ConnectionPtr mConn;

hr = mConn.CreateInstance ("ADODB.Connection");
 if(FAILED(hr))
 {
   mConn = NULL;
   return FALSE;
 }

also i've tried to replace "ADODB.Connection" (wich should be ok, cos i can create the object using a simple CreateObject in VB) by
__uuidof(_Connection)
