1) Why are you using ADODB instead of ADO.NET?
2) You must include System.Reflection.Missing for optional parameters:

System.Reflection.Missing missing = System.Reflection.Missing.Value;
cn.Open(oConn, null, null, 0);
cn.Execute(StrSql, ref missing, ref missing);

If you're converting it to VS2005, I would get rid of the ADODB stuff and use ADO.NET instead.  

Here's the ADO.NET equivalent of your code:

=====================================================================================
            string oConn, StrSql;
            oConn = "Driver={MySQL ODBC 3.51 Driver};Server=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx;Port=3306;Option=131072;Stmt=;Database=database;Uid=ADMIN;Pwd=pwrd";
            OdbcConnection cn = new OdbcConnection(oConn);

            StrSql = "insert into names (code, name) values ('00001', 'This is a test.')";
            ObcsCommand cmd = new OdbcCommand(StrSql,cn);

            cn.Open();
            cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();

            cn.Close();
=====================================================================================

I didn't put any error handling in there because I wanted to show you the straight translation.  In reality you should put the connection in a using{} block to make sure it gets closed if there is an exception.
