CDONTS - The system cannot find the path specified.
Posted on 2002-06-26
When using the CDONTS at the point of issuing the .send command I get this message, I am using Win NT4 which had exchange server already installed on it, so that when I installed IIS4 it didnt install the SMPT part. Originally I had a message saying it couldnt create the Active X component, but after using Regsvr to register CDONTS i get this message.
IF FOUND THIS IN A NEW GROUP
Your code tries to use CDONTS which is only installed if you install the
IIS4 SMTP Service. To install the IIS4 SMTP Service, delete the Exchange 5.5
IMS, install this SMTP service and after this is done just re-create the
Exchange 5.5 IMS.
And don't forget to reapply the latest NT and Exchange Service Pack to get
the latest CDONTS library
but this sounds a little extreme is there any other way, I dont want to have to re-build all my email accounts for everyone in the office, would take forever :(.
I used my Outlook 2000 to install the CDO components. I have looked on MSDN and it going on about using ADSUTIL enum SMTPsvc/1 to change the pick directory, altho my cscript command reccons it can do anything with .vbs files arrrrhhhhh, any help very much appriciated
