NetMaxtor, I dont think you can create a package for MDAC. Mdac by itself is a self contained package and you cannot do a setup capture on this and create an msi. I tried this when I was packaging MDAC 2.7 and 2.8 and it didnt work. Have a look at this article on the command lines for silently running MDAC installs. http://www.appdeploy.com/packages/detail.asp?id=89  . As for registering the dll's and ocx goes, you have opened a new question for it in this forum and I have given you possible answers on how this can done. Cheers.
