while sending a mail using SMTP E-Mail  an Error is occured

error is as follows

  00004nc9000c err#= 1733 line= 219 Class definition CDONTS.NEWMAIL is not found.1733 Class definition CDONTS.NEWMAIL is not found. CDONTS.NEWMAIL .NULL. .NULL. .NULL. .NULL. c:\program files\dotcomsolution\avfpdemo41\activevfp.dllerror '800a06c5'

c:\program files\dotcomsolution\avfpdemo41\activevfp.dll

/mywstudent/default.asp, line 6


i have copied the CDONTS.dll on my machine but while registring with regsvr32 it is not registerd.

After going through google , it was found that the CDONTS is depricated by Microsoft  and new one i.e. CDOSYS can be used to send E mail

my machine configuration is

OS = windows 2003 server



my prolem is

1) how to send E-Mail Using CDOSYS  :( i have made the modification in main.prg i.e in action=email2 routine as  follows

 oMail =CreateObject("CDOSYS.Newmail")<font face="Courier New" size="2">

but same error occurd

Looks like I included some old CDONTS code  instead of using the SMTP class.  Try the following instead:

CASE oProp.Action=='email2'
    oSMTP.cSMTPServer=''  && enter your smtp server name or ip
    oSMTP.cSenderName = oRequest.FORM("txtMailFrom")
    oSMTP.cRecipient= oRequest.FORM("txtMailTo")
    oSMTP.cBCCList = oRequest.FORM("txtMailBcc")
    oSMTP.cSubject = oRequest.FORM("txtMailSubject")
    oSMTP.cMessage = oRequest.FORM("S1")
    lchtmlfile = 'email2.htm'
    lcHTMLout= FILETOSTR(oProp.HTMLpath+lchtmlfile)
    lcHTMLout= oHTML.mergetext(lcHTMLout)

thanks claude

The problem is solved

actully i was forgot  to name  my SMTP server

and in main.prg i commented the omail object

my another question is

Can we execute the Stored Procedure of SQL through ActiveVfp if Yes How ?

once agian thanks for your valuable advice

I guess if the Execute method in the SQL class won't do it, I'll need to add an ExecuteStoredProcedure method to the SQL class.  I'll let you know when this is done..

SQL Stored Procedure can be Executed Through VFP9

Here is a Sample Code

mystring="server=COMPLAB2\SQLEXPRESS;driver={SQL Server};database=Student;Trusted_Connection=Yes"


IF myhandle < 0

=MESSAGEBOX('Cannot make connection', 16, 'SQL Connect Error')


 = MESSAGEBOX('Connection made', 48, 'SQL Connect Message')



DO myproc




PARAMETERS err,command

IF err > 0

 WAIT WINDOW ALLTRIM(UPPER(command))+"Completed Successfully"; 



WAIT WINDOW UPPER(command)+"NOT Completed Successfully"






sqlcomm= "execute StdList"   && this is the Stored Procedure Name in SQL


DOerrhand WITH err,"SQLExec(handle,"+sqlcomm+")"

IF err > 0

=MESSAGEBOX('Executed Successfully', 16, 'SQL success')

Cool, then you should be able to test and use the SQL class and methods in ActiveVFP.  there's an example in main.prg that you just have to modify.

That one I haven't had time to look into.  It was supposed to just be a jquery example but I'm considering taking it out all together.  If you could look into and fix it up it would be greatly appreciated!

It's based on a PHP example where I just swapped out PHP code for VFP code located here:
