Having recently moved up to VB 6.0 from VB 5 and having installed Service
pack 3, I am a little confused about the process of packaging and deploying
a project that contains ADO Data controls and a Data Environment (which has
a connection with commands and data reports).
First, when I start the Packaging Wizard, I soon get the message saying that
my project uses DAO with a list of drivers on my system and asking which of
them I want to include. The list consists of
certain Excel drivers
an Exchange 4.0 driver
a Jet 2.x driver
an ODBC with Jet Workspaces driver
an ODBC Direct driver
and various other drivers of no interest, like text, html, etc.
Which am I to include?
The second part of the question is this: The Wizard when finished says that
it included MDAC in the setup files, but for it to install properly, the
computer for the installation has to have DECOM98 installed. Well, I found
DECOM98.exe and DECOM98cfg.exe on the VB 6.0 CD. Now what I need to know is
what is the sequence for installing my application on the target machine,
and which Decom file do I use and when do I use it?
Additionally, I suppose to test all of this, I need to find a "clean"
machine to try it on. For example, how can it determine if DECOM98 is on
such a machine already.
Thanks in advance
