You can download the redistrutable exe from microsoft-site.
Install this on every pc that requires the new mdac.

Do you need to use the 2.8 library? If not, then try referencing the 2.7 library in your Access application and deploying that.

good idea but i think i have found better : put my msadox.dll 2.8 in my application folder and referenced it at this place - so i leave the 2.7 in place and it seems ok
