OLE DB Test Tools
To obtain the conformance tests, you must install the standalone MDAC 2.8 SP1 SDK. The conformance tests are not included with Windows DAC in Windows Vista.
OLE DB testing components are provided to help you develop OLE DB consumers and providers. These components are not redistributable and must be used solely for developing OLE DB consumers and providers.
The Microsoft Local Test Manager (LTM) is an easy-to-use tool that provides a single point of control for automated testing of OLE DB providers. LTM can be used with Microsoft Visual Studio, Microsoft Visual Basic, and Microsoft Visual J++ development environments.
For more information about conformance testing, see Conformance Testing in OLE DB.
Rowset Viewer is offered as a sample for experimentation and as a tool for immediate use. For more information about the sample, see Rowset Viewer Sample. To run the tool, click Start, point to Programs, point to Microsoft Data Access SDK 2.8, and click RowsetViewer, or run RowsetViewer.exe from Windows Explorer. For more information about its features, see Rowset Viewer Menus and Toolbar in the OLE DB Samples section.
