Failed to create connection with DB


Hello Arthur,

Good Day!

To resolve this problem, follow this method:

· In your ADO connection string, avoid using “Persist Info” keyword

·  You need to add OLEDB_SERVICES registry entry

Reminders: Create OLEDB_SERVICES value in the registry keys of providers that only support COM aggregation.

I hope this is help you.
