During the Package operation, PDW should have recognize that your application is using ADO, and should have added a file called MDAC_TYP.EXE (which is 6 or 7 meg big).

When you will deploy your application, this EXE will be launch to install everything ADO needs.

Not totally everything!!! If your application is executing on a Win 95/98 computer, you need to install DCOM98.EXE before your setup. You can find this file at http://www.microsoft.com/com/dcom/dcom98/dcom1_3.asp
