    mdac


    Hi guys
    I want to install mdac 2.5 on my machine programatically.
    after checking for its existence .
    i am executing it by shell api call.
    Is there any way or any api call by which i can know wether
    mdac 2.5 (2.5 is important) is installed or not so that i don't have
    to install again it if it is already installed.
    Thanks

    Hi, Sanjay,

    You can try to instance an ADO object and then test for their version
    (for sample, ADODB.Connection object). Do it using the CreateObject function,
    to prevent errors if exists a different version of ADO installed.

    Good luck!

    Filipo
