Windows XP and ODBC

Are the ODBC drivers different?

I'm tranferring an .asp app to a Windows XP machine running IIS5.0 and the ODBC drivers can't seem to connect to Access?

Does anyone know if any changes were made to the ODBC drivers within XP?

Thanks.

I spent quite a bit of time digging around the MS support site and found nary a hint or clue! Anybody have any ideas?!?

>connect to Access

Are you using the same version of access?

Yes, exact same version of Access - same file in fact.

I also searched the KB and didn't find anything.

FOLLOW UP:

having struggled with trying to get XP to work, I gave up and reinstalled 2000 Server. That worked fine.

something is up with the XP IIS installation and I can't find a thing on it.

Is ANYONE out there running IIS on XP?

SECOND FOLLOW UP:

I posted this same problem on another forum dealing specifically with Active Server pages. Someone wrote last night that they just installed XP and had the exact same problem - ODBC couldn't find the database.

Looks like we uncovered a bug here. Is there a site to report to MicroSoft.?
