Thread: Microsoft Data Access Components

    Microsoft Data Access Components


    Does anyone know which "standard" programs Microsoft Data Access Components
    are distributed with?

    I'm trying to decide whether to include it with a web download (doing so
    increases the download from 7MB to 13MB) so am basically wondering what percentage
    of people will have it already.

    Many Thanks
    dave

    Hi Dave

    MDAC is included in NT4 and Win 2000. For Win9X it is included if Internet
    Explorer is ver 4.01 or higher. This means a vaste majority already have
    it. But you have to consider to include it if your app uses the latest version
    or at least inform them that MDAC ver X.X is needed and supply a download
    link for it.

    ...and then there are those running Netscape!

    Regards,

    Bernie
