ADO CreateInstance() Problem?

I have a simple console app that I'm trying to use ado to connect to.
When I run my code:
spADOConn.CreateInstance( __uuidof(Connection));
spADOConn seems to always contain the value of
0x000...

Am I doing something wrong here?
My stdafx.h only contains the following:
#if _MSC_VER > 1000
#pragma once
#endif // _MSC_VER > 1000

Here is my code:

#include "stdafx.h"
#include <stdio.h>

#pragma warning(disable: 4146)
#import "C:/Program Files/Common Files/System/ADO/MSADO15.DLL" \
no_namespace rename("EOF","adoEOF")
#pragma warning(default: 4146)


int main(int argc, char* argv[])
{
     _ConnectionPtr spADOConn = NULL;

     try
     {
         

          spADOConn.CreateInstance( __uuidof(Connection));

          spADOConn->Mode = adModeReadWrite;
          if (SUCCEEDED(spADOConn->Open("Data Source=ADOClientDS",
               "","",adConnectUnspecified)))
          {
               spADOConn->Close();

               printf( "True" );
          }
          else
          {
               printf( "Err" );
          }
     }
     catch( ... )
     {

     }
     return 0;
}

Call CoInitialize right at the start of the main function. This will initilaize the COM libraries that you need to create the COM objects,
