This behavior is caused by a problem in the Windows 95 operating system, which may present itself when multiple requests are made simultaneously to ADO.

  • Use ADO on Windows 95 only under light loads.

  • Run Active Server Pages on Windows NT or Windows 2000 when using ADO under heavy loads.

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the Microsoft products listed at the beginning of this article.

This behavior is by design.
