Reading Advanced Data TableGram (ADTG) Files

  adodb, c++, com, windows

I am wondering if there is a way to interpret the content of these files without reliance on COM when they are in ADTG format?

For background these are serialized ADODB Recordsets. They can be serialized as either XML or proprietary ADTG format [1].

I have so far attempted to read the files as binary using various encodings as well as viewing hex. While there is a tantalising amount of readable data, it’s not quite right. I have tracked the COM object to msado15.dll that lives in Program FilesCommon FilesSystemado on a Windows 10 installation.
