MDAC URGENT Help Needed

I have developed my app using MDAC 2.7 and all my references point to that version.  Now I am told that I need to change it to be MDAC 2.5 compliant.

Is there a way I can reference the 2.5 version in my app so that it runs on clients with 2.5 installed.  

Currently the app only runs on clients with 2.7.

I've tried reinstalling 2.5 on my own PC but as suspected, it didn't overwrite the 2.7 files.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Much!!!

Which version of MDAC your applcation expects is based on what was selected as a reference in the Project References dialog box.

So, if you need a 2.7 version and a 2.5 version, it should be simple enough to take your project to a development machine (it's probable that your current development machine is fine) and then go to Project References, and uncheck the reference next to the Microsoft Active Data Objects Library 2.7 and put a check next to the 2.5 version, and recompile the application.  Then, you would build your install to include the 2.5 version of the MDAC_TYP.EXE file (or, you can leave out the MDAC if your environment pre-supposes that it is already installed).
