MDAC_TYPE Too Noisy!!!
im distributing mdac_type 2.8 with my application and I have 2 questions:

1 - Is there any way to hide or silence de mdac instalation?? the most uncofortable problem is the licence agreement screen.

2 - Im only using the "Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects 2.8 Library" in the proyect, is there any way to force the mdac installer to install ONLY this component??? or any other realiable way to distribute it not using the mdac installer??

lots of thanks!!

Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0 Provider And Mdac_type.exe

My VB application read and writes data from and to a MS Excel workbook,
using the Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0 provider. I have installed the MS ActiveX
Data Object 2.0 Library on my computer and everything works fine.

I have created a setup using the Package & Deployment Wizard. I thought,
let's make the setup a bit more up-to-date, so I included the mdac_type.exe
version 2.7.

However, after installing the setup on a different computer (that never had
the MS ActiveX Data Object 2.0 Library installed), the application cannot
open the MS Excel workbookbecause the provider cannot be found.

After a quick investigation on Microsoft's site, if saw that the Microsoft
Jet OLE DB Provider isn't provided in the mdac_type.exe version 2.7, so it's
clear why the application can't read the MS Excel workbook.

So, in the future, do I have to add the 'old' mdac_type.exe version 2.0 to
my setup instead of the most up-to-date version of mdac_type.exe? Of do I
have to change the way of opening Excel workbooks, instead of using the
Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0 provider?

Who can help me out?

What Dpes This Mean? You Have Included Mdac_type.exe It Requires DCOM98 To For Win98
I get a message when I am packaging my program that says I have included Mdac_typ.exe in my package. To install correctly on a Windows 95/98 computer I need DCOM98. I dont have DCOM98 and it doesnt install properly on my Windows 98 pc thought the program works flawlessly on my Windows 2000 pc. Imagine that huh.
Well on my Win 98 pc every part of my program works except the parts that have a Media Player control. This is after it has not installed correctly. So how can I make the parts of the program that contain media player work correctly, and where can I get DCOM98 and where should I put DCOM98 once I get it.
