Delphi -> SQL7

Does anyone know what DLL's I need to successfully connect to SQL Server 7.  Installshield installs BDE and my application, and I know to use the MSSQL driver, but I'm getting a failed to initialise IDAPI service NTWDBLIB.  I've copied NTWDBLIB.DLL to the windows\system directory and I still get the error.  What other DLL's do I need ? Note, it's SQL 7 not 6.5

simonet is right. You should be able to install the client software from the SQL7 CD as I did?!

Just run through the install as you did when you installed it on the sever and it should automatically pick up what components to install (provided you are not trying to install it on an NT machine).
