Application which uses mdac_typ 2.5

I have created an application which uses ado to connect to an access2000 database. For 95,98 systems I have to include mdac_typ 2.5 in the installation. This increases my file size by approx. 7mb. I created a dependency file, but it didn't tell me what ado file I would need. Can anyone tell me how I can find which mdac files my program needs to run instead of including the whole mdac_typ file.

As far as I know MDAC needs the entire file to install properly.  

Not only do you need the ADO components, you need the Jet 4.0  compnents for Access2K.

MS would say they recommend you deploy the whole of MDAC 2.5

However....

If you take the MDAC out of the redist folder and run the PD Wizard again it should pick up the key files -

the reason MS recommends this is that some of the DLLs in the MDAC are protected on ME, 2k and XP by Windows File Protection and so may cause problems with the installer if you attempt to install these DLLs
