Delphi and ADO (or should that be DBgo?) deployment
Posted on 2002-04-17
I've written a little database app using Delphi 6. I
did in no time thanks to Delphi's database development
architecture - what a pleasure to work with.
I'm about to deploy the app on a separate PC, and
have a few issues to address:
1) I have asked the user to have MS Office Pro (with Access) installed - will this ensure that MDAC is installed ?
2) I presume Delphi's ADODB components use early vtable binding - are they therefore restricted to a given version of ADO ? If so which one ? My Delphi installation
came with the MDAC_TYP.exe installer for MDAC 2.5.
3) I've drawn a blank. Gonna have to post a comment when
I'm not prepared to create a huge installer, I just wanna
give my user the .exe and .mdb and other miscellaneous files.
