The windows installer is already part of windows and is updated automatically by windows updates. You don't need to look for it

Also, I ran the MDAC_TYP as recommended.  It ran very quickly with no windows, I am wondering if it ran correctly?  Should it not come up to a wondow and say install?  It did not.

What about the Power Shell, do I need to install that?
