Hello,

I've got an ASP application which accesses a local SQL server via a file DSN.

I get the error:

80004005

[ODBC Driver Manager] General error: Unable to create file buffer

Any advice would be greatly appreciated?

skbohler,

The info on this page is a little dated but still might fix the error.  Search your computer for a file named CTTFFFF.TMP.  If it exists then make a file called CTT0.TMP in the same folder and see if that fixes your error.  You can look at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/130719 for info on this.

Let me know if you have any questions or need more information.

Unfortunately, no such files on my PC.

I figured this one out. I gave permission to a temp directory and the error has gone away.

It would be nice to know which temp directory and what permissions you gave.....
