Error -2147024891when trying to connect to a 2004 db with DI API

When trying to connect to a SBO 2004 database, I get the error code "-2147024891" with no error message. The error message was not listed in the licensing document.

Has anyone got a clue what this error code is about ?

Best regards,

Henry

    • Here's the most important info in this note:

      On the client:

      a) Go to your "Start Menu" and select "Run".

      b) Type DCOMCNFG in the "Open" textbox and hit the "Go" button.

      c) For Windows XP: Navigate down the tree to Console Root => Component Services => Computers => My Computer. Right click "My Computer". For Windows 2000 you have direct access to a window with several tabs init.

      d) Go to the tab "Default Properties" and check the option "Enable Distributed COM on this computer".

      Once the message "Access is denied" disappears, the message: "Call was rejected by callee" might be displayed.

      On the license "server":

      a) Go to your "Start Menu" and select "Run".

      b) Type "regedit" in the "Open" textbox and hit the "Go" button.

      c) Navigate down the tree to: "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\OLE

      d) Double click in the "Enable DCOM" name to view its properties.

      e) Change the value to "Y" even if it is already set to "Y".

      f) Restart your computer.

      Regards,
