I'm a little confused here and hope someone maybe able to help.
The InstallShield MDAC 2.8 merge module (essentially a wrapper for MDAC_TYP.EXE) information page found at...
http://support.installshield.com/kb/view.asp?articleid=Q109806
states the Install Location option of 'UI' is available to allow the installation completion of Jet.
However, The Microsoft page detailing the 2.8 MDAC_TYP.EXE...
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=6c050fe3-c795-4b7d-b037-185d0506396c&displaylang=en
states that 'This release does not include Microsoft Jet'.
So, does the 2.8 MM contain Jet or not? If so which version (inc. SP)?
Thank you,
Tim Owers

In my understanding it means: if you want to install Jet after MDAC, then you need to reboot after the MDAC install (before you install Jet). Installing Jet after MDAC without rebooting in between sometime causes errors.

Ah Ha!
That makes sense. Maybe a little re-wording is in order on the part of IS.
Thanks.
Tim.
