When configuring the Database Export Connector for KTA, I receive the following error message:

“Could not load file or assembly ‘ADODB…”

How can I resolve this issue?

The error message points to a missing DLL: ADODB.DLL. This is usually installed with any Microsoft Office Product.

For Kofax, this was typically installed by a Capture installation. The KTA Application Server installation does not install this DLL. This will be addressed in a future KTA release.

To work around the issue, please retrieve the ADODB.DLL file from a system that actually has it installed. Drop the DLL file into the Windows\Assembly folder of the machine missing it, then restart that machine.
