avi_shina,

ADOExpress was included only in D5 Enterprise, and could be purchased as an add-on for D5 Pro, but no more:

I'm afraid your only option now is upgrading to D6.

BUT, if you want to keep D5 and use ADO, you can look at some third party ADO components (most of them offer you a trial):

Hello

  also you could use ADO from any version from Delphi but without using the ADO components, you can do that by code using ADOX

Well, this looks like a version conflict between ADO
and MDAC(Microsoft Data Access Components). ADO components
are probably trying to use different MDAC version then is
currently installed in your system.

You should try reinstalling MDAC by hand.
I think there is MDAC directory on CD. Search for a file MDAC_TYP.EXE (or similar) on your Delphi 5 Enterprise CD-ROM, this is MDAC installation.
Try installing it this way first.

If this doesn't help, you might try installing newest
MDAC version from Microsoft:
