Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80004005' Error

Discussion in 'ASP General' started by paul tomlinson, Jul 1, 2003.

  1. Hi folks - i've got a windows 2000 server (SP3) i've run the IIS
    lockdown tool on it and set for dynamic websites - all the static
    pages within the site work ok but an ASP section has been put in which
    now keeps giving me the error below :

    Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80004005'

    [Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver]General error Unable to open
    registry key 'Temporary (volatile) Jet DSN for process 0x404 Thread
    0x6ac DBC 0xbd7014 Jet'.

    /logon.asp, line 21

    I've looked at security writes and at one stage gave the anonymous
    user full rights to everything but still no joy - Anyone got any
    ideas? probably something simple i've missed within the IIS config
    (I've been assured the ASP code was working on another server)

    Thanks in advance

    Paul

    Paul

    Are you using Access 97 by any chance?

    I had this problem with my website using an Access 97 database on a Win2k
    server - same error. I changed the database to Access 2000 - no more
    problem.

    Oh, and as Bob says, don't use ODBC.
