The code sesion as below:
#include "stdafx.h"
#import "D:\Program Files\Common Files\System\ado\msado15.dll" no_namespace rename("EOF","adoEOF")
inline void TESTHR(HRESULT x){if FAILED(x) _com_issue_error(x);};

int APIENTRY WinMain(HINSTANCE hInstance,
                     HINSTANCE hPrevInstance,
                     LPSTR     lpCmdLine,
                     int       nCmdShow)
      // TODO: Place code here.
     _bstr_t SqlStr;
     _bstr_t CnnStr;
     _bstr_t BookList;
     _ConnectionPtr AdoCnn=NULL;
        TESTHR(AdoCnn.CreateInstance(__uuidof(Connection15),NULL)); // Error in this line
     _RecordsetPtr AdoRcs=NULL;
     TESTHR(AdoRcs.CreateInstance(__uuidof(Recordset))); // And this line too
     CnnStr="driver={SQL Server};server=apphan04;uid=sa;pwd=;database=WebDemo";
     SqlStr="SELECT * FROM Books";

     return 0;

//=====  END OF CODE ==========
Builing is OK but error while execute program...

Why don't you press 'Retry'? It'll take you straight to the source line where the problem is...

_ConnectionPtr AdoCnn=NULL;
_RecordsetPtr AdoRcs=NULL;
TESTHR(AdoRcs.CreateInstance(__uuidof(Recordset))); // And this line too

This is your problem. AdoCnn not set to an instance of _ConnectionPtr, so the AdoCnn.CreateInstance call references a method of an object that isn't even there. You need to instanciate the objects, so they don't point to NULL. Try this instead:

_ConnectionPtr AdoCnn();
_RecordsetPtr AdoRcs();
TESTHR(AdoRcs.CreateInstance(__uuidof(Recordset))); // And this line too

Don't be alarmed if this doesn't work, I'm not very familiar with the Windows API. The point is, you try to call a method of an object that doesn't exist. The compiler doesn't get that, but at runtime, this will trigger an error.
Anyway, as a beginner to C++, I wouldn't start doing ADO database calls. This is a little too tough, you may want to gather some experience before doing this sort of stuff.

I hope this helps.

I've found the ans for this proplem. Now it's OK after I add a ::CoInitilize(NULL).

You know
I use the way that import msado15.dll into my projects. Are there any way to use ADO in a C++ program? Which you offen use?

I'm writing a COM+ component. Following the instruction in a book, I include comsvsc.h file - that file doesn't exists in my PC - and I can find after install Platform SDK...
My PC with W2K Advance SP2, are the any way to write a COM+ component without install new Platform SDK ?

This is the source code in my early project,in data connectiong you must ensure the instance of the connection
is created succeeded .
                    bstr_t(L"Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0; Data Source=db.mdb;"),
     catch(_com_error &e)
          _bstr_t bstrSource(e.Source());
          _bstr_t bstrDescription(e.Description());
          TRACE("Exception thrown for classes generated by #import");
          TRACE("\tCode meaning= %s \n",e.ErrorMessage());
          TRACE("\tSource= %s \n",(LPCTSTR)bstrSource);
          TRACE("\tDescription= %s \n",(LPCTSTR)bstrDescription);
          TRACE("***Unhandled Exception***");
