DAO installation package

I have a dao application which I need to post on the web for downloading. Can I exlude it from the installation package and direct vistors to the mdac_typ download?.
Also, who needs to install it? Only those who donĀ“t have msoffice istalled?

Reading some more on the microsoft website, it seems like those with Windows XP, Windows 2000, Access 97 and Access 2000 won't need to install mdac_typ.exe. Is this a fair assumption??

ADO is included in MDAC not DAO and in particular the JET components have not been included in MDAC since version 2.6. Check out this article:

So which version then? What about Win 2000 and XP, will the dao routines work?

I don't know, I have not used DAO in more than 4 years, but I suspect that they are not installed with Windows 2000 or XP.

This article from MSDN seems to tell a different story:
