When I run a setup off my program an error appears sqaying that it can't register the msado25.tlb file.
I chose "ignore" and the program seems to work fine.
Although is not nice to distribute the setup with an error.
How can I solve it?

Thanks

Are you distributing the ADO files separately, or are you distributing them through the MDAC_TYP.EXE self-extracting install program?

According to Microsoft, you are bound by the license agreement to only distribute ADO runtime components through including this MDAC_TYPE.EXE in your install and not through including the individual ADO files.

So, if you're not distributing ADO through MDAC_TYPE.EXE then doing so will probably stop this error from occuring, and would keep you in compliance with Microsoft's license agreement......

you should not distribute this dll in the first place.
if you need to distribute ado you need to use mdac_...exe to install ado.

this dll should be removed from the package.

Unable to register MSADO15.TLB
This error message may reference any of the following files:
