How to distribute Access 97 run-time package?
Posted on 1998-06-09
I am writing a Delphi 3 application that uses an Access 97 database. This application needs to be distributed to a number of machines, which means that I need to distribute a set of Access run-time files. My question is, how do I do this? What files need to be included, what servers must be registered, etc?
I have been unable to find any information about this, so any help will be appreciated.
I have tried to cheat a bit: I created a rudimentary VB 5.0 application that accesses my database. Then I used the VB Application Setup Wizard to generate an installation program, in the hope that this would cause the Access 97 run-time package to be correctly installed. Unfortunately, while my VB program runs just fine after executing the installation program, BDE reports that it can not initialize VBAJET32.DLL (I am using version 4.51 of the BDE).
Does anyone know how to get around this?
Thanks in advance,
