    ASP Problems

    We have a company intranet and my asp page works fine but when it is transported to our web site we get this error:
    Active Server Pages error 'ASP 0224'
    Cannot load TypeLib
    /vacancies/car_workandtraining_jobs_vacresult.asp, line 6
    Cannot load Type Library specified in the METADATA tag.
    The metatag is :
    METADATA TYPE="TypeLib" File="C:Program FilesCommon FilesSystemadomsado15.dll"
    Can anyone help please as the ISP does not have any ASP experience ?
    TIA

    First things first, I guess. Can you or someone at the ISP make sure that the ADO library is loaded on the server?

    Shane, I am a VB programmer at heart and am now coming to ASP, how do we check that it is loaded and if not actually load it ?

    Forgive me Father, for I am a relative newcomer as well; be sure you take my advice with a healthy dose of salt!

    On the server, check to see if a copy of the Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) has been loaded; you can quickly check by surfing to the path you specify in the File attribute of your METADATA tag and looking for the ADO .dll you specify. If it hasn't been loaded, perhaps you can work with the staff at the ISP to see if it is possible. The latest version of the MDAC is available for free download from our friends in Redmond.

    >>METADATA TYPE="TypeLib" File="C:Program FilesCommon FilesSystemadomsado15.dll"

    That looks suspiciously like a *local* path to me...

    Re: ASP Problems

    sorry to hold up the novice card again. What is special about a *local* path?
    The intranet server has msado15.dll in the
    c:Program FilesCommon FilesSystemado path as does the web server. one works, the other doesnt.
    Is there some procedure we need to carry out on the web server to get the pages working on the web site ?

    Re: ASP Problems

    Ah that's Ok then. On Linux/Apache, paths are quite different that's why I thought it sounded as though it might be pointing to the one on your desk.

    Re: ASP Problems

    If this is OK then what is preventing the web server from running the page properly ?
    How does the dll get 'registered' ?
    It seems that this must involve more than just copying the file to that location ?
