    Update older DLLs with Package & Deployment setup (2000)

    This is, perhaps, a stupid question but....

    It was my impression that the Package & Deployment wizard would take any needed DLLs for my application (msado.dll, msadox.dll, and msjro.dll for example) and include them with my package. Indeed, it appears to do so.

    HOWEVER, when I install that package on a system with OLDER versions of the same dlls, my new dlls are NOT installed, and my app goes down in flames. Is this the way it is supposed to work?

    If not, any advice? If so, any better products out there that solve this problem?

    Thanks much (also posted in the VBA forum)

    Are you sure they're older versions? You sometimes get that message when the versions on the machine are actually newer than what you're trying to install.

    Since you did crosspost here, I'm going to lock this thread and request responses be posted to the VBA thread. There is no point in two active threads on this topic.
