I am maintaining a vb6 application that needs to be move to a new windows server 2003
The new server will not have vb6 install since we do not have the installation cds.
The exe is copy over from my workstation to the C drive on the new server.
The vb6 fails to run and by using msgbox fails at this line
Set cnnJE = New ADODB.Connection
I believe all the references from the old workstation was copy over to the new server.
I could make changes to the vb code on the old workstation where it works and
move it to the new server where it does not work.  Do I need anything else to get the
vb6.exe to run ?

you will need to run the ADODB (mdac) setup.

If it is a 64-bit edition, consider that a 64-bit Windows has:
- two different versions of the system directory:
      System32 - Windows System folder for 64-bit files
      SysWOW64 - Windows System folder for 32-bit files
- two versions of the regsvr32.exe file:
      The 64-bit version is %systemroot%\System32\regsvr32.exe
      The 32-bit version is %systemroot%\SysWoW64\regsvr32.exe
