    Using VBScript to connect the Microsoft Access Driver (.mdb) file getting
    error on Vista, but it is working on XP

    connstr="Driver={Microsoft Access Driver

    The following error using Vista

    "[Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver]'(unknown)' is not a valid path.
    Make sure that the path name is spelled correctly and that you are connected
    to the server on which the file resides."

    Could you please give some solutions /suggestion to fix this error?

    I would suspect that what is needed for the solution to run on XP is there,
    and it's not there in the same manner on Vista. You might have a versioning
    issue in using MDAC between the two O/S(s) or it might even be a security
    issue on Vista.

    You have heard of the Vista UAC manifest that a program may need to use to
    present security credentials for an application running on Vista? Use Google
    and look up information about the UAC manifest on Vista that a program may
    need to use.

    You cannot expect that something that runs on XP is going to run on Vista,
    without some possible tweaks.
