VB6 application gives ODBC Drivers error '80004005'
Posted on 2004-04-17
I'm using a vb6 application on my win2k machine which connects to a remote sql server. When I run the application I get the following error:
Run-time error '-2147467259 (80004005)':
[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][Named Pipes] Specified SQL Server not found.
My colleague wrote this app and on a previous beta version we didnt get any such error. The datasource hasn't changed since.
My question is how can I verify a connection from my win2k client to the sql server manually. Can I run dos utility or something? Generally how can I go about troubleshooting this error.
