Windows 2000 system. But my ADO connect () call is
failing unless the system I am making connect() call
logon to remote Windows 2000 system where I have
MSDE datbase. Could you let me know how log on

If you need to access the DB as a file, try to connect to a share on the machine without logging on:

   NETRESOURCE               nr;

         ZeroMemory     (     &nr,     sizeof     (     NETRESOURCE));

         nr.dwType               =     RESOURCETYPE_DISK;
         nr.lpLocalName          =     "";
         nr.lpRemoteName          =     "\\\\server\\share";

         dwRes     =     WNetAddConnection2     (     &nr,
                                                      acPassword,
                                                      acUserName,
                                                      0
                                                 );

         if     (     dwRes)
              {
                   // error
              }

It might be worth a try to set the MSDE settings on the server to use "SQL Server Authentication" (rather than "Windows 2000 integrated security") and also make sure that the ODBC settings on the client are set to use TCP/IP (rather than named pipes).

CreateProcessAsUser() will help us to create a process as if we are currently log on to particular server. This may be the thing you are looking for
