It shouldn't matter if the folder is password protected or not.It's the browser that is denied access to the folder, not the asp script.

Re: ADODB Connection String with password
This error means that MDAC is not installed on the computer or that your MDAC installation is corrupted. Since PR-Tracker installs MDAC 2.5 this probably means you have a corrupt MDAC installation on your computer. MDAC corruption is common because some application programs erroneously attempt to install a partial version of MDAC.

To fix the problem first try installing MDAC by running mdac_typ.exe which can be found in thePRTRACKERDB\Netsetup folder. If this doesn't solve the problem then your MDAC installation is corrupted (perhaps with mismatched components from a higher version). Microsoft has and MDAC checker that will help you trouble shoot your MDAC installation.
