I have a vb.net application. I make odbc connection to database through code. I am connecting to sqexpress database. It works perfectly on all desktops and even a server running windows server 2003. They're IT guy wants it loaded on his termnal server to allow remote users access to new program. Creating the odbc connection through wizard works perfectly and "test connection" is successful. However, when i start program, the code that works perfectly everywhere else fails. The error is "provider cannot be found". MDAC appears to be loaded and ran componentchecker 2.0 utility from microsoft which found it (2.8 sp2) and didn't indicate any problem.
