Why does ASP give me ActiveX errors when connecting to a database? Reply with quote

You may see the following errors after installing / re-installing / removing Microsoft Access, Visual Studio, or certain SQL Server components:
Microsoft VBScript runtime (0x800A01AD)
ActiveX component can't create object: <progid>
Microsoft VBScript runtime (0x8002801d)
Library not registered.
The problem is that operating systems prior to Windows 2000 had no way of preventing external applications from removing or replacing critical system DLLs, like those installed with MDAC (Microsoft Data Access Components). To fix this error, simply (re-)install the latest version of MDAC Reply with quote
