Deploying a winforms app via CD - MDAC and framework etc

Hi

I am deploying a winforms app via the windows installer and a VS.Net 2003
setup and deploymnet project.

At the moment, I am adding launch conditions for the .Net Framework 1.1 and
MDAC 2.7 or higher, and am prompting the user to run the relevant setup
files if they're missing. I'm including these setup files on the CD.

I can't work out from the Data Access downloads page, which MDAC file I need
to deploy. Can anyone help me? Most of the MDAC files there seem to be
service packs or 'refesh' files. The only 'complete' file there seems to be
MDAC 2.8. Is this the version I should be distributing anyway?

Has anyone had any luck getting the bootstrapper samples to work for them?
Both for the .NET Framework and MDAC?

Thanks

Terry

I'm not sure which version of MDAC you would need to deploy. MDAC 2.7 is what VS 2003 installs, so that would
probably be a decent place to start. I think that should be available on your Visual Studio .NET 'Windows
Components Update' media.

I know people who have successfully used the bootstrapper samples. Also, there is a recent addition to
gotdotnet.com which includes better interaction between the sample and VS.Net. See:
