Word, Outlook Automation

If creating an application that uses some Automation routines for Word97, do I have to distribute the object library for the office product with my application, then declare the object and if it fails then you know the user doesn't have word or excel etc... Or does it use object library if it is available when distributing the app?

Does this make sense?

Is there a way of detecting whether or not a user has Word, Excel or Outlook installed from within VB6?

Download Filemon from www.sysinternal.com
this will show you which files are trying to be loaded
that are the ones you need to distribute using a setup utility

BTW: Maybe Microsoft does not allow you to distribute them
