Runtime error -2147217887 (80040e21)
Posted on 2002-06-15
I have a VB6 application which updates SQL Server7 data using ADO. The app was developed on a WinME machine and all functions are OK. The app was packaged and deployed to a Win98 machine and the Update method generates the runtime error -2147217887. I downloaded and installed 'DCOM98.exe' on the Win98 machine but with no apparent improvement. I have deployed the app on to the original WinME machine to check on the package&deployment and the installed app performs OK.
I have read two previous EE questions and the MSDN articles Q168335 and Q168354; none of the explanations or solutions seem appropriate.
All relevant advice will be gratefully accepted.
