Hello expeerts,


I am building a .net application on a windows server andrquired me to connect to a DB2 database using the follwoing connection string;-
 TCP/IP:
Provider=IBMDADB2;Database=sample;HOSTNAME=db2host;PROTOCOL=TCPIP;PORT=50000;uid=myUserName;pwd=myPwd;

I have installed ;- DB2 Express-C (DB2 Express-C for Windows x86 32-bit) on my system, but when I run my .NET applIcationis get error;-
'IBMDADB2' provider is not registered on the local machine.

1. I did the same on a windows 2003 server and it worked fine. Is there an issue with 2000 server and IBM DB2.
2. How do I go about fixing the problem.
