ADO 32-bit/64-bit Incompatibility
Posted on 2011-03-10
I have been developing an application on 64-bit Windows with 32-bit Access for quite some time without problem. Until last week....Now, when I distribute the application to the users (who are running 32-bit Windows with 32-bit Access), any code that includes ADO blows up. If I open the database on any user's machine and change the ADO reference, all works perfectly. I know that I could fix this problem by changing to late binding, but this is not an option since there are hundreds of places where I use ADO.
