Redistributable Files For Databases

P: n/a
I am using an Access 2000 database in a VB 2003 .NET app and am unsure which
redistributable I need to send with my app so that it will be able to work
with this database format. In my conenction string, I am using the following
provider: Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;

Do I need a specific version of MDAC, or MDAC 2.6 with Jet 4.0, or can I use
the latest MDAC only? Any info on what I need to send in an installation
with my app to work with this database and connection type would be greatly
appreciated.

Hi,

I would include the mdac merge module in the installer. The main
thing to worry about in the connection string is the path to the database.
