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

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.
