When you try to add a new database connection to your Microsoft FrontPage Web, you may notice that the Files of type list in the Database Files In Current Web dialog box is empty.
This behavior can occur when you install Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) version 2.5 on the Microsoft Windows NT 4.0-based server computer without having first installed MDAC 2.1.
Microsoft FrontPage uses the registry settings created by MDAC 2.1 to populate the Files of type list with the list of available database drivers. If you install MDAC 2.5 without first installing MDAC 2.1, these registry settings are not created and the Files of type list in FrontPage remains empty.
To resolve this issue, reconfigure Microsoft Windows NT to use MDAC 2.1 SP2, and then reinstall MDAC 2.5. To do this, follow these steps.
