EC Enterprise: Can't connect to EnergyCAP using an internet connection
Posted by Joel Brickell, Last modified by Joel Brickell on 15 July 2015 02:25 PM

ISSUE: I can't connect to an EnergyCAP database using the Internet (not LAN) connection option with EnergyCAP 6.0, 5.0, or 5.1.


  1. Make sure you have downloaded the latest version of the sqlxml_provider.dll from the following location: This file will be located in the Program Setups > Enterprise 6.0 folder

  2. After the file has been downloaded, install the file in your IIS server where the EnergyCAP files are located, REPLACING the existing sqlxml_provider.dll.

  3. Please make sure that your IIS server is using AP.Net version 2 and NOT version 1.

  4. Verify that your Catalog Server connection string is in the proper ADO format as referenced in the EnergyCAP 6.0 Installation instructions, also available from in the Program Setups > Enterprise 6.0 folder.
