Package and Distribution problem....file not found

HI there !!!
I have a VB application with Access 2000 as backend.
After creating the setup file using the default VB package builder, when i try to install the application on the users PC, i get an error message "File not found" when it is installing the "Data Access Components". Using the same setup file , I have successfully installed the application on my PC.
The user OS is Windows XP and i have windows 98 on my PC.
Why cant i install the application ???? I have already downloaded MDAC 2.7 SP1 and installed on my PC.

Do you have VStudio SP5 installed on your machine. if no then you will get plenty of strange errors with PWD.

MDAC is automatically included by PWD. The default MDAC that is included by PWD is 2.1.

Look in the directory Microsoft Visual Studio\VB98\Wizards\PDWizard\Redist to see the MDAC file that will be included in your package and replace this file with the version of the package you require.
