We have an application that uses the Jet engine.  One client is running
"Windows XP Service Pack 3 build 2600" on a machine with "4x Intel(R)
Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz" and memory of "2848/3583 MB
(free/total)".  On this machine the ADODB dll's are missing.  

--How does he get them back? --

The MDAC download does not run as it detects that the machine is XP.

Our client is in Australia.  I've forwarded your response.  When I get a reply I'll let you know.  Thanks for the rapid response.  I've been searching for how to do this for a couple of days. Jim

Excellent, I had searched unsuccessfully for an answer to this and even tried MSs support (one response they gave was to re-boot)
