View Full Version : IXP 2.0.1 AND VB5.0 RDO

I am using IXP 2.0.1 to install a VB5 app. which uses RDO. RDO is
failing. However, we can run the VB installer afterwards and RDO works.
Looking at the log file for the VB installer (something IXP needs), no
files are copied because IXP correctly moved the files. However, it
does re-register all the files. This seems to indicate that the RDO
support files are not being correctly registered.

Taking a hint from the newsgroup, I looked at swdepend.ini. Here is
what the file looks like:

[MSRDO20 DLL]
Src=<WINSYSDIR>
Uses1=MSRDO20.DLL
Uses2=RDOCURS.DLL
;Uses3=ADME.DLL
;Uses4=DTCCM.DLL
;Uses5=DTCTRACE.DLL
;Uses6=DTCUTIL.DLL
;Uses7=MSDTCPRX.DLL
;Uses8=XOLEHLP.DLL

My question is what is the significance of the ";". There is only one
other file which has the semicolon before the Uses line.

None of the files with the ";" show up explicitly in the program files
listing. Are they included with the installtion behind the scenes?
(The VB installer does have them explicitly in the program files
listing.)

If so, is the ";" the reason the RDO files are not registering properly?

Sincerely,

Nick Caldwell

For RDO to register ODBC needs to be installed on the target machine.
The lines which begin with ; are not significant.

Thank you for the reply. However, ODBC was installed on the target
machine prior to the installation of our product.

Are there specific ODBC files that must be present?

Also, for the lines beginning with ";" -- are those files included in
the setup package behind the scenes?

Sincerely,

Nick Caldwell

Does RDO register properly when you run the Express install twice on the
same
machine ? Iam not suggesting this as a workaround but just need more info.

The lines beginning with ; are completely ignored.

I've been able to confirm that RDO does not register
when running Express Install twice on the same machine.


At this point I've tried:
1) Letting ISX2.01 do an automatic install
2) Creating a generic Windows install and copying the VB installer
file list file by file
3) As 2 above but with a VB5 specific install.

So far no luck.

This is happening to me, any solution? When I run the install the second
time everything works ok. Or after reboot I can manually register these two
files.

Thanks
Michael

The only solution that I can think of is to check if ODBC/RDO is installed.
If not, run MDACRDST.EXE from a DLL and if the install is successful,
notify your user that he should run the setup again after the reboot to
continue the installation.
