Hi,

I get the above error message when running an ASP.NET web application, using Sybases ASE ADO.NET.  The sample that comes with the installer for ASE ADO.NET (called TableViewer), running in Windows forms (not web) runs fine.  But when I use the same connection string in an ASP.NET page, it fails.   I set up Sybase.Data.AseClient in References.  Here is the VB code I'm trying to run:
____________________________________________________________________

Imports Sybase.Data.AseClient

Public Class WebForm1
    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page
    Private _conn As AseConnection

Private Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load

connect_to_mars()

End Sub

Private Sub connect_to_mars()
       
 Try
  'connect to the Mars database
   _conn = New AseConnection("Data Source='xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx'; Port='4102';UID='username';PWD='password';Database='mars';")
   _conn.Open()

 Catch ex As AseException
    lbMarsError.Text = (ex.Source + " : " + ex.Message + " (" + ex.ToString() + ")" & " Failed to connect")
       
 End Try
End Sub
______________________________________________________________________________


It throws this error:

Server Error in '/ASPdotNET/pa' Application.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Unable to load DLL (sybdrvado11.dll).

Version Information:
Microsoft .NET Framework Version:1.1.4322.573
ASP.NET Version:1.1.4322.573
Sybase ASE 12.5.2
Sybase.Data.AseClient 1.1.327.0

Big thanks for any help with this.
