installing dcom95

Last Modified: 2013-11-13
I receive the error "Error loading advpack.dll" when installing dcom95. It all started with my installation program (wise) failed to register msdadc.dll.

According to MS knowledgebase there is a file conflict between msdadc.dll and ole32.dll. The solution was to install dcom95 (or dcom98). My project uses ado to read and write to a MS access DB. I have included support for ado in my install script (MDAC_TYP.EXE).

Any suggestions?
