In our of our VB.NET form, we are using system stored procedure sp_databases to return list of databases. It works fine. Our SQL Server is 2000 and dedicated. This database list is shown in the combo box. It works fine.
Now in production environemtn user runs our EXE and connects to a dedicated SQL Server 2005. But he cannot see any database list in the combo box. Why? If user can connect to SQL Server 2005 and can perform table updates using other forms, why he does not see the database list on combo box? whereas if sp_databases is ruin directly from server, the list of database is shown.
