Deploying D3 BDE/MSACCESS
Posted on 1998-12-12
I'm trying to use InstallShield Express as shipped with D3 C/S to create a setupkit for an application that I have created. The problem is with the setupkit, rather than the application. On the computer on which I test the setupkit, setup runs to completion, and when I run the application I get the BDE dialog that collects the username/password for the database. Immediately after closing this dialog the application reported that it could not load an IDAPI service "DAO3032.DLL" so I found the file on my computer, added it to the setupkit and retried. No dice, same error.
The target computer certainly has a valid installation of DAO (in fact it's more recent than the one on my PC) and I don't see why the BDE should be dependent on a particular version of the Jet engine.
Can anyone offer guidance on using InstallShield Express to deploy MSACCESS based applications - what files to include, settings to specify etc?
