That's the problem with InstallShield msm's. If you want to install MDAC 2.6
using the MDAC 2.5 msm, then SOL and you have to do it the old long way.

The documentation in the MS knowledge base says you shouldn't install
jet40sp3_comp.exe if Jet4 is already installed. So how do you check to see
if Jet4 there already?

This may not be an install shield problem, but has anyone else faced this situation:

We created an install and it works great on all platforms except win2000pro with sp2. Our application uses Access2000, so we have a VB script that installs the correct jet40sp5_xxx file on target machine.

Now for win2k with sp2, there is microsoft documentation that states jet40sp5_w2k is not required to be installed. Our install scripts tries to install this anyway, and it gives an error message -
"Setup has detected that the Service Pack version of the system installed is newer than the update you are applying to it. You can only install this update on Service Pack 1"

It appears that our application installed properly, and that windows did not install jet40sp5_w2k.

But our application does not work - we keep getting an error - "cannot connect to the database"

I have few questions ;
1. Is there any tool that lets IS handle install of jet engine, instead of us trying to do this thru a script ?
2. Has anyone else faced such a situation, and how did you resolve it?

thank you in advance

needless to say, that this issue is critical to the very existence of mankind.

We are currently working on a Jet4.0 merge module and it is currently in beta testing. Please see a thread from "Jim Kang" (http://community.installshield.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=56839&highlight=jet+4.0) on this newsgroup for information in trying this module out. That way we can release a pretty clean and well tested module.

I tried this on clean Win2K machines but not with Win2K Sp2. That's an interestiong scenario I will try in a few minutes! Try installing the 9xNT Jet engine as well on this machine though. If I am not mistaken the Replication Manager is NOT installed by the Win2K jet redist. The following is from an MSDN article:

"NOTE : You do not need to install this update if you have already installed Windows 2000 Service Pack 2 (SP-2). The Important note below the link to download does apply even after installing Windows 2000 SP-2.

IMPORTANT : If you plan to use Replication Manager, you must also download and install Jet40SP5_9xNT.exe from the "For Computers That Are Running Microsoft Windows 95, Microsoft Windows 98, or Microsoft Windows NT 4.0" section. There is a problem with the Setup program on Windows 2000 that prevents the installation of the updated replication files: Msrpfs40.dll, Mstrai40.exe and Mstran40.exe. "
