Could you elaborate please...

Is the setup program a automatic setup program like Wise Installer, Install Shield etc.

It sounds like you have not included some dll's with the install. Most likely MDAC (Data Access)

You can get MDAC from the Microsoft downloads web site.

Have you runned DCOM95.exe (or DCOM98.EXE) before installing ADO? This is a sure requirement.

thanks all of you, i figured the answer myself after some r&d.  the problem was that i needed to install mdac2.5 which adds the required dll's used by ado 2.1 library.
