Delphi and ADO (or should that be DBgo?) deployment

Hi,

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 remember...

I'm not prepared to create a huge installer, I just wanna
give my user the .exe and .mdb and other miscellaneous files.

Thanks.

hi,

usually if i want to give a app which uses ado
to a customer, i recommend the latest mdac installed

and each customer can get the latest
mdac from microsoft for free

thats why mdac isn't a product of mine,
even if my app does use it

meikl ;-)

Are you using Jet?  If so you should be able to simply distribute the exe and mdb.  Try it and see.

Yip, I'm using Jet. Just Jet. What I really wanna know is
if an Office 2000 installation (with Access) will install
all the components I need. i.e MDAC 2.5 and the DAO driver
as meikl said.
