IIS can't open ODBC with Jscript

By dryflies ·
I get the following error when attempting to query an Access DB using a script:

Error Type:
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 0x1d0 Thread 0x6a8 DBC 0x2342024 Jet'.
/quickgraph.asp, line 28

I have looked in technet for a solution but The solution did not help when implemented. The line referenced is a conn.Open statement. The script worked before we did a reinstall of w2k server. Now we get the error. Am I missing a configuration item?

Sounds like you do not have the correct Data Access Objects (dao) loaded.

Download dao 2.5 or higher from microsoft and install it.

This answer covers the problem. it was the IUSR_.. account did not have write permissions for the DB. Even though it was only querying the DB and not updating.
