ADO Provider Problem

ADO Provider Problem

Question:
I created a program to help our sales department to keep track of their sale quotes. It uses a MDB database and I used the ADO components to gather and update the database.

It works very nicely and I would like to distribute this to all our sales teams. But, after installing and running the program I get a warning: “Error 3706: ADO could not find the specific provider.”

What dependent files do I need so that our sales teams can use this without having Access or VB on their machine?

Answer:
Use the Packaging and Deployment Wizard, or a third party installer. They know the appropriate files to include for your application.
