  • SQL Server 7.0 Clustered Servers: Do not install MDAC 2.6 or later versions on any Microsoft SQL Server 7.0 clustered nodes. If you install MDAC 2.6 or later versions on any node in the cluster, directly or through the installation of another program, it may cause a failure of the SQL Server Agent or other SQL Server services. For more information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
    820754 MDAC 2.6 or later should not be installed on SQL Server 7.0 clusters
Setup
  • Windows rollback: On a computer that is running Windows 98 or Windows Millennium Edition, if you try to roll back your MDAC installation to an earlier version, the computer is left in a mixed state where your files are not all from the same version of MDAC. This behavior occurs because of a problem with the setup technology that is included with Windows 98 and Windows Millennium Edition. For more information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
    311720 MDAC rollback may fail on Windows 95, Windows 98, and Windows Millennium Edition
  • MDAC 2.8 SP1 MDAC_TYP.exe file and Windows Server 2003 or Windows XP: If you try to run the MDAC 2.8 SP1 MDAC_TYP.exe file on a computer that is running Windows XP or Windows Server 2003, installation fails, and you receive an error message. To update the MDAC version that is installed together with Windows XP or with Windows Server 2003, you must use operating system service packs or Windows Update.
