VB6 right?

ADO 6.0

ADO 6.0 is included in Windows Vista, as a part of the Windows Data Access Components (Windows DAC) 6.0. ADO 6.0 is functionally equivalent to ADO 2.8.
As discussed here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms676506(VS.85).aspx


If you are using vista machine, you do not have problem installing it because it is already included in vista. If you are using xp or later, no need to use ADO 6.0 because its functionality is equivalent to ADO 2.8.


Usefull thread for you to read...

My developing PC has XP, VB6 SP6 and VBA 6.5.  The apps developed are for XP pc in the LAN, but there 1 or 2 Vista box.

My initial question came because in my VBA I was importing a package called "Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects 6.0 Reference package" from collegue and got the error above.  When I go to the Reference it does have Checkmark "Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects 2.8 Library"

Waht can be causing the error?

The package contents:
--------------------------------------------------------------------
<Component Name="Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects 6.0 Library" ProductId="0" Object="VBAReference" >
VBAReference      "Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects 6.0 Library"
{
      FilePath      "C:\\Program Files\\Common Files\\System\\ado\\msado15.dll"
      Guid      "{B691E011-1797-432E-907A-4D8C69339129}"
      MajorVersion      "6"
      MinorVersion      "0"
}
</Component>

Don't use Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects 6.0 Library if you are developing under windows XP, because it shipped under vista, instead use Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects 2.8 Library.
