    Mdac 2.5

    Hello,
    I have a small project here which uses a microsoft access db with ado. I tried to let Installshield import my vb-project and did not change a single thing.

    After installation, my program was not able to open the access db and crashed. Next step I included the complete mdac25 with the object merge modul. But now the setup is larger than 10 MB. Is there a way in between? Just to take all the other ado modules seems not to be enough.


    Regards

    There is nothing inbetween. If your application needs ado then you have to include it. Most setups will be of that kind of size.

    I would suggest waiting for the next upgrade (3.54) which has a new mdac merge module with a lot of issues fixed.

    Note, if your users are on WinME, win2k or XP then mdac is already installed.

    Thank you for your reply!
    Ok, that's the way it is.
    It is just a bit crazy the app is only about 1 MB and the installer about 10, so I was just curious.
