When I include MDAC2.6 merge module, i requires restart.
Why? MdacType.exe doesnt need restart. How can I install MDAC2.6 merge
module
without the need to restart when I run Setup?

If you install MDAC 2.6 on a machine without MDAC or an older version of
MDAC you ALWAYS need to reboot the machine (even if you run the redist
mdac_typ.exe manually). However, I guess that the merge module prompts a
reboot even if the same version is already installed. I believe there is a
property (ISINSTALL_MDAC_BYVERSION) you can set that don't reboot is the
same version is already present.
