    I setup the ISS on my notepad on windows XP Pro SP2 and I try to connect to a
    database and I get the "Microsoft JET Database Engine (0x80004005)
    Unspecified error" The mappath is ok since it works in my host site but not
    in my localhost. Any help would be appreciate.

    Yes, thats what I emean, IIS. Thanks for responding... WEll, what happen is
    that none of my database connections work in my loptop, for example: I have a
    simple login code and this is the connection code
    " Set conn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
    conn.Provider="Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0"
    conn.open server.mappath("database/eudos.mdb") " and I have it in an include
    file to used with the other asp files. It works on my interner server
    hosting site but not here and I have that error... I check my firewall even
    tho, I disabled it to try and still not work what can I do? it works in my
    desktop but I need it on this one so is somekind of setting disable or not
    set and I really not know which... thank you for any
    help........................ Paola F.

    change conn.open server.mappath("database/eudos.mdb") "

    to conn.open ("c:\database\eudos.mdb")

    hopefully this might sort out the issue,

    alternatively check out the permissions on the website, make sure
    execute (i think) is switched on for the mdb file.

    HTH

    This isnt so much an access issue as a general iis type of issue i
    think
