Summary

The current procedure for installing Microsoft Data Engine (MSDE) is to run the Msdex86.exe Setup on the client computers. When you install a Windows Installer-based application that requires MSDE, this process does not change. This article lists the options that are available for installing MSDE 1.0 when your application uses the Windows Installer.

More Information

Two basic options are available to install MSDE 1.0 when your application uses the Windows Installer as its setup technology:
  • Require that MSDE 1.0 already be installed on the system before you run your Windows Installer-based application.
  • Create a wrapper program that checks for the existence of MSDE 1.0 on the system. If MSDE 1.0 is not detected, run the Msdex86.exe package before you run the application .msi package. Note that if MSDE 1.0 requires you to restart your computer, you must set the RunOnce key to continue the installation after the restart. If MSDE 1.0 is detected on the computer, simply run the application .msi package without calling Msdex86.exe.
