When I install Windows 98 (standard installation), I expect the ODBC 32 icon to be in the control panel but it's not. Is this supposed to be a separate installation ? I have it on an other machine but I am not sure if it is there as a result of installing MS Access.

I am distributing an application that requires the MS SQL Server ODBC driver.  How do I go about installing the ODBC driver ? Can I do that right from my application ?  With Windows 98, is all the required software already installed by default (MDAC, etc...) ?

Thank you.
