OK, I read the article on connection pooling here on 4guys...I find it hard to believe that such an important feature would not be enabled by default. Anyway, after checking my registry I found that the keys mentioned in the article were not there. However, I am still a little weary as to which key(s) should be added, it&#039s value, and what to name it. Can someone please help?<BR><BR>thx<BR>mikey
