    Unhappy Specified driver could not be loaded

    [Mods, please move this if it's better off in the MySQL forum]

    Hi,

    Just got a new cobalt RaQ4, with ChiliSoft ASP and MySQL pre-installed. Trying to move one of out sites (functional, but in development) from a RaQ3 to this new one. I've set up the database in MySQL, and all the appropriate usernames, passwords, etc. modified my connection string, but get this little gremlin:

    ___________
    ADODB.Connection.1 error '80004005'

    SQLState: IM003
    Native Error Code: 80
    Specified driver could not be loaded
    -----------------

    Using Driver={MySQL} in the connection string. This must be a set-up problem on the ASP side, right? The driver is there, but maybe something's missing. Been trying for ages to figure out what.

    Any ideas?

    Much appreciated,

    m03;5

    Hmm. Read this thread. I had a few problems making DNS-less connections to MySQL in ASP. The quick fix was to uninstall the MyODBC version i had (3.52 or so) and install MyODBC 2.5

    Or check out the connectionstrings and info here
