If you obtain the Jet 4.0 Service Pack 8 download for computers that are running Microsoft Windows 95, Microsoft Windows 98, and Microsoft Windows NT version 4.0, you will also receive the ODBC Desktop Driver Pack drivers. These drivers are included with the Windows 2000 operating system, the Windows XP operating system, and the Windows Server 2003 operating system. The ODBC Desktop Driver Pack drivers includes the following files:
      File Name          Version          Size   ------------------------------------------   Odbcji32.dll       4.0.6205.0       60,224   Odbcjt32.dll       4.0.6205.0      285,224   Oddbse32.dll       4.0.6205.0       27,464   Odexl32.dll        4.0.6205.0       27,464   Odfox32.dll        4.0.6205.0       27,464   Odpdx32.dll        4.0.6205.0       27,464   Odtext32.dll       4.0.6205.0       27,464
Note The Jet 4.0 Service Pack 8 download for computers that are running Microsoft Windows 95, Microsoft Windows 98, and Microsoft Windows NT version 4.0 does include the ODBC Desktop Driver Pack drivers but does not completely install the drivers. To correctly register the ODBC drivers on your computer, you also have to install Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) 2.6 or later. MDAC does not include these driver files, but MDAC does include the core ODBC DLLs that are required to install the drivers and to use the drivers. You must install MDAC after Jet 4.0 Service Pack 8 so that the files are correctly registered.Note The file size may vary slightly. The file size depends on the version of Windows that you are running on your computer. The file version does not change.
