We are connecting to Paradox tables via ADO/ODBC and the Microsoft supplied
Paradox driver. Everything was working fine until the release of Windows
2000 SP2 and Jet SP5 for NT.
After applying these updates on W2K or NT we encountered first a
"Catastrophic failure" error in ODBC which we have since managed to resolve.
However now when trying to connect, the following error is encountered:
"Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80004005'
[Microsoft][ODBC Paradox Driver] Invalid setting in Excel key of the
Engines section of the Windows Registry. "
The connection is being processed in the global.asa file of an ASP
At this point in our code we are initialising the Paradox Driver, at no
point are we dealing with an Excel Object. There appears to be no obvious
problems in the Engines section of the registry for Excel or any other
driver. Information on MSDN has not proved helpful.
We are using ADO version: 2.6 as installed by Win2K SP2
Does anyone know why applying either of these updates would result in the
above mentioned error?
Thanks in advance for any help you can give us.
