Jet engine install

P: n/a
Hi,

We would like to use Jet engine as database for our application. But I
found out that there are five versions of Jet Engine 4.0, one for each
version of Windows. But we would like to ship only one installer for
our application. How can I solve this problem?

You should have them install all of the filew by installing the proper SP;
you should never try to include them in your setup.

To add to Michael posting Jet 4.0 updates can be downloaded through Windows Update.
But you can verify that at least Jet 4.0 SP8 by double checking the version of
msjet40.dll installed on the client system.

What I've done is use the various API calls available and am checking the version
number and date/time of a crucial dll, msjetxx.dll, to ensure it matches what I have
on my system. See the tips page at my website for more details including sample
code: Verify Appropriate Jet Service Pack is installed
