Error -8008 - Error While Trying To Initialize Database

31 Views

While trying to connect to a 2004A database using DI API 6.7 and a VB.NET web page, I get the error listed in the title of this post. I was wondering if someone could give me a hint as to what this error message refers to and how I might be able to resolve it. Thanks in advance for your input.

Public Function Connect() As String

        Dim s_Error As String
        Dim i_Error As Integer

        Try

            oCompany = New SAPbobsCOM.Company

            With oCompany

                .Server = "(local)"
                .CompanyDB = "SBODemo_US"
                .UserName = "manager"
                .Password = "manager"
                .language = SAPbobsCOM.BoSuppLangs.ln_English

            End With

            oCompany.Connect()

            If oCompany.Connected = False Then
                oCompany.GetLastError(i_Error, s_Error)

                Return s_Error
            Else
                oCompany.Disconnect()

                Return 0
            End If

        Catch ex As Exception

        Finally

            oCompany = Nothing

        End Try
        
    End Function
