    Default IIS 5 - General error Unable to open registry key

    ( - also posted on inetserver.iis)

    Hi

    I am a web programmer with an ASP-based website on my
    webhosts server (Win2000, IIS 5) which references an
    Access 97 database. I am INTERMITTENTLY getting errors of
    the kind:

    Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers (0x80004005)
    [Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver]General error
    Unable to open registry key 'Temporary (volatile) Jet DSN
    for process 0x9ac Thread 0xa0c DBC 0x15d1024 Jet'

    I have read the articles:

    [url]http://www.aspfaq.com/show.asp?id=2009[/url]
    [url]http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=306518[/url]
    [url]http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=315456[/url]

    on this matter, and intend to refer my webhost to them.
    However, after enduring this error for over 18 months and
    across several servers, he has basically admitted that he
    is at a loss as to its cause, and claims there are other
    websites on the same server experiencing no problems.
    What is notable here is that the site will process its
    code without trouble on most occasions, and then suddenly
    fail, producing the error described above. Additionally,
    I have an identical copy of my site on my ISPs free
    webspace which has never failed.

    Is this a permissions problem? Why does it occur
    inconsistently, when code flow is uniform for all site
    visitors?

    Any help greatly appreciated.

    Thanks Bob. I have instigated the change with the OLEDB
    version of the connection string and so far all is ok.
    Time will tell.

    The URL is useful too. Thanks for your help! :-)
