Hi,

I want to install DAO services in a brand new Windows XP 64bit edition PC but I cannot. The installer does not run at all.

I think is because DAO is only 32bit compatible.

is there a way I can install DAO service in a Windows XP 64bit edition PC?

Hi gzarate,

From what I can see on MSDN is that it is not available

Obsolete Data Access Technologies

Obsolete technologies are technologies that have not been enhanced or updated in several product releases and that will be excluded from future product releases. Do not use these technologies when you write new applications. When you modify existing applications that are written using these technologies, consider migrating those applications to ADO.NET.

The following components are considered obsolete:
DB-Library: This is a SQL Server-specific programming model that includes C APIs. There have been no feature enhancements to the DB-Library since SQL Server 6.5. Its final release was with SQL Server 2000 and it will not be ported to the 64-bit Windows operating system.

Embedded SQL (E-SQL): This is a SQL Server-specific programming model that enables Transact-SQL statements to be embedded in Visual C code. No feature enhancements have been made to the E-SQL since SQL Server 6.5. Its final release was with SQL Server 2000 and it will not be ported to the 64-bit Windows operating system.

Data Access Objects (DAO): DAO provides access to JET (Access) databases. This API can be used from Microsoft Visual Basic®, Microsoft Visual C++®, and scripting languages. It was included with Microsoft Office 2000 and Office XP. DAO 3.6 is the final version of this technology. It will not be available on the 64-bit Windows operating system.

Remote Data Objects (RDO): RDO was specifically designed to access remote ODBC relational data sources, and made it easier to use ODBC without complex application code. It was included with Microsoft Visual Basic versions 4, 5, and 6. RDO version 2.0 was the final version of this technology.

But you figured that out already I guess

Cheers!
regards,

Trenes

Yes , I figured out this before but I thought that probably one of you experts could know any magical trick to solve this issue, now I am sure that DAO services are not Windows XP 64 compatible.

Thanks
