insert this section

Dest=$(CommonFilesSys)\ADO
Replace=mdac_typ.exe
CABFileName=mdac_typ.cab
CABDefaultURL=http://activex.microsoft.com/controls/vb6

you shouldn't distribute msado25.tlb. you need to distribute MDAC_TYP.EXE

find vb6dep.ini on your PC, open it, find the "MSADO20.tlb" section, copy it and paste it just under and change MSADO20 for MSADO25

This is what I find in vbdep.ini

[MSADOR15.dll]
Dest=$(CommonFilesSys)\ADO
Replace Conditional=mdac_typ.exe
CABFileName=mdac20.cab
CABDefaultURL=http://activex.microsoft.com/controls/vb6
CABINFFile=mdac20c.inf

[MSADO15.dll]
Dest=$(CommonFilesSys)\ADO
Replace=mdac_typ.exe
CABFileName=mdac_typ.cab
CABDefaultURL=http://activex.microsoft.com/controls/vb6
CABRunFile=setup.exe

When I run the performing validation in Wise for Windows Installer I get this respons!

The file msado25.tlb is installed in a shared directory without the Shared DLL Reference Count flag set.
File Key: msado25.tlb

The file is put on
C:/Program files/Common files/SYSTEM/ADO/msado25.tlb

What to do!
