    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.

    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.
