I have noticed that a lot of people say they are having problems with the MDAC merge module.

Is this true? What are the problems?

I have noticed some on say to use the latest file and install it silently. If so can someone tell me how to do this.

Cheers.

The biggest problems I am aware of are

1. Our module insists on installing it on a machine with Ie 4.01 Sp2
2. If there is a Setup.exe from a previous installation in the Temp folder, the MDAC install fails
3. In some cases it appears as thought MDAC installs twice. But this has absolutely NO impact on the rest of the install.
4. You cannot delay the MDAC reboot or run it in verbose mode or customize it in any way.

If you want to create your own Custom Action for MDAC search this newsgroup because there are a few posts that discuss it.
