Hi Everyone,
I want to obtain the following:

Depending on the version of MS Office installed, we need to install the appropriate MADE (Microsoft Access Database Engine) version. The MADE install should run silently in the background. If a user uninstalls our application, the MADE is left untouched and remains on the user's computer. SO How can i do this ?

I would suggest looking into Prerequisites. Basically, you can set install conditions on an installation that is required for your product to work. Have a prerequisite for each of the MADE types conditioned to install for your requirements.

Here are some helpful links:
