Distributing DAO - please help!
Posted on 1998-10-27
I am distributing an application which uses Access databases. Therefore, I will need to distribute the DAO
with my application by installing the JET engine on the end users macine(s).
Microsoft's site does not make it clear at all how to go about this, so could someone please explain.
I will need to distribute my app, the database file (*.mdb) and then these DAO files. Surely I don't need to install a Microsoft product that uses the JET engine on every machine that needs it? Can't I just get hold of a Jet Engine setup to go with my own application's setup? MS say that it is a free distribution but you have to get a licence to do it. If you develop with an MS product, that's fine. But what about with Delphi?
