I have MS SQL Server on my Laptor. I used VB to create
a DSN less connection to MS SQL Server by using ADO 2.1.

Everything is working fine on my laptor. When I put my exe
into another desktop, the dsn less connection failed.

In order to make it connect, I have to create physical ODBC connection to my MS SQL Server. Why ?

How to make DSN less connection working on other desktop ???

Surely because one of the parameter is not the same.

Can you show us your code?

Here is my code :

  Set objConn = New ADODB.Connection
  Set objRs = New ADODB.Recordset

Try using this syntax:

oConn.Open "Provider=sqloledb;" & _
           "Data Source=" & arryINI(1).strDBServer & ";" & _
           "Initial Catalog=" & arryINI(1).strDBName & ";" & _
           "User Id=myUsername=" & arryINI(1).strDBLogin & ";" & _
           "Password=" & arryINI(1).strDBPassword & ";"

The SQL Server and other desktop are on different domain.

This is not a problem as long as you can ping the server and you have valid user id and password.

try this:
To connect to SQL Server running on a remote computer (via an IP address)

oConn.Open "Driver={SQL Server};" & _
           "Server=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx;" & _
           "Address=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx,1433;" & _
           "Network=DBMSSOCN;" & _
           "Database=myDatabaseName;" & _
           "Uid=myUsername;" & _
           "Pwd=myPassword;"
