sorry bout that.

Here is a component that checks what version of mdac you have on your system.

Once you find out what it is, then download and reinstall the proper version.

When i run that program, i run the program to find what version, and it says 2.8 for window xp. I also can find in the registry part of this, the mismatched registry keys. How do I correct this?

what if you make a backup of your registry, then delete those keys, reboot the system ... hope that it will reboot ... then reinstall mdac.
