Using distributed transactions from RDO 2.0 may generating an error stating that the connection is invalid.


The problem may occur when RDO loads the Distributed Transaction Coordinator (DTC) components after having previously unloaded them. RDO no longer unloads the DTC components when it is unloaded from memory. The DTC components are then unloaded when the process ends.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a bug in the Microsoft products listed at the beginning of this article. This bug has been corrected in version 5.00.3817 of the file msrdo20.dll, which is included in Visual Studio 97 Service Pack 1.
