    XP and Visual Basic 6 SP5 (XP Pro)

    Greetings everyone!

    I have recently upgraded my computer to XP (Windows + Office) and hence I have now MDAC version 2.7 installed. After installing VB6 I intended to install the latest servicepack (SP5), but when I try to run the setup program, it tells me that my MDAC is too old - it requires version 2.5 (?). I must install a newer version before I can install SP5 (?). Even though I didn't like it, I tried to install MDAC 2.5 that comes along with VB6SP5, but fortunately this setup program refused to install, because the installed MDAC version was already version 2.5 (?). Seems like a deadlock to me ;o)

    Anybody out there with suggestions?

    Thanx in advance

    Jesper

    Seemly SP5 requires MDAC v.2.5 or 2.6 only. Download lower version (you can start from 2.6SP1) from Universal Data Access Web Site, install SP5 and then reinstall MDAC 2.7

    Hi kaplinb
    Thanx for your quick reply. I found the actual reason for my problems. I forgot to mention that my XP is Danish - so my XP MDAC files were located in a folder named (C:ProgrammerF

    Now THAT is a solution to remember!! Thanks for letting us know Jesper....I was thinking about this one and had a few ideas starting to hatch. Turns out they were way off the mark. <img src=/S/blush.gif border=0 alt=blush width=15 height=15>
