Unable to include oledb32.dll into deployment project
Posted on 2003-11-11
I'm trying to make a deployment and setup project in order to deploy my application. I'm currently having difficulty in deploying my app.
Firstly when i try to use the wizard for the deployment project it searches for all the dependencies and among those oledb32.dll is included. It lists the following when it detect this dependency:
"The following files may have dependencies that cannot be determined automatically. Please confirm that all the dependencies have been added to the project
c:\program files\common files\system\ole db\oledb32.dll"
How do i check the dependecies of this file for my project manually?
When trying to build the solution with the deploy & setup project included it generates an error when oledb32.dll is included in the project. If i exclude it the solution compiles fine.
It generates the following error when compiling with it included:
"oledb32.dll' should be excluded because its source file 'C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\Ole DB\oledb32.dll' is under Windows System File Protection."
I know that the common files folder is read-only and i have tried to remove this but to no use (it actually turns back to read-only as soon as you click ok on the properties window after de-checking it)
So how do i successfully include oledb32.dll into my deployment project?
Please help - I really need to get my deployment working soon.
