Error code 3704 In Running Failsafe


In running the option, Failsafe, there is the error message as “Error: 3704 Operation is not allowed when the object is closed. At ConsoleUtilities Messages.Format CheckForField by Console”. There is no error in the option as Normal Mode.


The DSN driver for “Smart Answer Fail Safe” is not same as for “Smart Answer” in ODBC.


1. Delete the existing DSN, “Smart Answer Fail Safe”

2. Configure it again with the same driver as “Smart Answer”.


NOTE:  To make this change, it may require admin user rights.

If the driver is different between Smart Answer and Smart Answer Fail Safe (below) it will cause this error to occur. The DSN, Smart Answer Fail Safe should have the same driver, SQL Server Native Client 11.10 as Smart Answer.
