To redistribute DAO 3.6 with an application, complete the following three steps.
- DCOM95 should be installed on Windows 95 systems that do not have DCOM installed. DCOM95 is distributed in a file called Dcom95.exe. A reboot of the system is required after installing Dcom95.exe. DCOM is required for the Mdac_typ.exe to work. DCOM is pre-installed on Windows 98 and Windows NT systems, so this step is only required for Windows 95.
- Install Jet 4.0, which is installed as part of Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) 2.1 or 2.5, but is not included in MDAC 2.6.
- Create a directory with the name DAO under C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared and copy Dao360.dll to this directory. In addition, Dao360.dll must be registered as a COM DLL. This can be accomplished by using the Regsvr32.EXE utility.
