I have written an application using VB 6.0 and I am having trouble with the installation. I built the install using InstallShield Express.
I am using an Access 2000 database in the application. I included the MDAC_TYP.EXE install program in the setup. It says that DCOM is also required for Windows 95 and 98 machines.
1. Do I include the DCOM install? What if the installer is using above Windows 98? What if the installer is using Windows ME?
2. Should I convert the Access 2000 database to Access 97 and use DAO?
3. In one attempt, I returned a 3706 error, which indicates the need for MDAC_TYP.EXE. Installing MDAC_TYP returns another error. What gives?
