Find vb6dep.ini on your harddrive. Open it in an editor (maybe Notepad!!!). Find the section named "MSADO20.TLB". Copy these 6 lines just under and rename MSADO20.TLB to MSADO21.TLB.

The only way you can fix it is to distribute and run MDAC_TYP.EXE manually before your setup and ignore the error while the setup is running.
