Web service on 2012

I have a classic ASP site that I am moving to SmarterASP.net

All works well with this web app lest the web service (http://classnet-001-site1.smarterasp.net/vsl/service1.asmx).

Although you can view the service in a browser, I get an error when trying to use it:

Could not load file or assembly 'ADODB, Version=7.0.3300.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

It is running as a .NET 4.0 app on server 2012

Any thoughts?

You will need to enable NET FRamework 4.5 in the Features in Windows 2012 including ASP.NET 4.5. Also, you need to allow access to ASP>NET 4.5 in IIS  Web service extensions.

Look slike you need to upload the adobdb.dll to your bin folder on your web site to allow access.

The nearest knowledge base document I found is here:

Dropping the ADO file in the bin worked.  Thanks
