Getting Rid of ADO

61 Views, 3 Replies

Because of incompatibilities with some of my D4 apps and conflicts with
other applications, I need to either get rid of ADO that was installed
with Office 2000 and need to restore the drivers that were compatible
with Access97 or figure out a way that they can coexist on the same
computer. One suggestion was to erase all the ODBC files in the
Windows/System directory but that doesn't seem to do it. Any
suggestions?
TIA,
KCS

Wow. As with much of Microsoft's stuff, the data access things get their
fingers into a lot of your system's pies. I think it's _really_
difficult to step back.

If you detail your problems, we might be able to help; my experience has
been that Microsoft is doing pretty well with backward compatibility in
this area.

I am using Borland Delphi 5 and I wish to display an AUTOCAD drawing file in
my application. Is there any existing VCL to do that or should I use ole
automation. In that case, what object should I use?
Thanks a lot in advance.

Darned if I know. I doubt that much of anything exists; the Autodesk file
format is proprietary. There is one organization that has reverse-engieered
it to some extent.

Ask in the autocad.customization newsgroup.
