Hi all,
I have written a program that should be able to run both on Windows 98 and Windows 2000.

When I start the program on the 2000 machine,
it tells me that the reference is not found
ADO ext library for DDL and Security

When I open the code and select the reference manually (other version of that reference) the program runs fine.

Anyone has an idea?
