    MDAC and Office (All)

    I have VS .NET 2002 installed along with Office XP in a Win 2000 partition., MDAC is no problem there.
    Office 2003 will be install along with VS .NET in a successor Win 2000 partition. I ASSumE that MDAC will not be ta problem there.

    MDAC 2.6, or later, is required for .NET Framework, but I don't want to break Office.
    I want tro install the .NET Framework with either, or both of, Office 97 and Office 2000.

    Can Office 97 work with any version of MDAC?

    Can Office 2000 work with any version of MDAC?

    If not, which versions of MDAC are safe to use with each version of Office?

    The simple answer is Yes, Office 97 and 2000 will work with at least MDAC 2.6 without problems that I've seen.

    I'd get MDAC 2.8, since if you install that you don't need to install the recent MS03-033 fix...

    Guess I'll risk installing MDAC 2.8 everywhere.

    Re: MDAC and Office (All)

    I've installed MDAC 2.8 in eaxh of the following systems:

    1. Office XP and VS .NET 2002
    2. VS .NET 2003 and waiting for Office 2003 and VSTO.

    Systems with Office 97 and with Office 2000 do not have VS .NET and are still pre-MDAC 2.6.
    I'll need to upgrade at least one of them to MDAC 2.6+ (likely go to 2.8) so I can install .NET Framework.
    I guees that I could put Framework 1.0 on one system and Framework 1.1 on d'other.
