Windows 7 - MDAC 2.8 SP2 for W2K3 R2 x64 SP2

Asked By Jack on 04-Jun-07 11:21 AM
How do I install MDAC 2.8 SP2 on a Windows Server 2003 R2 Standard x64 that
has SP2 for Windows Server 2003 installed? There is no download for MDAC 2.8
SP2, it is not in add/remove programs and I cannot find it on the Windows
installation CD.

MDAC 2.8 SP2 is included in Windows Server 2003 R2 Standard x64 and does not
need to be installed separately.

AIUI, it's already installed.

Note that you can only "see" 32-bit ODBC components from 32-bit
applications (and that includes the ODBC Administrator - run odbcad32.exe
from SysWOW64 to get the 32-bit version), and "see" 64-bit ODBC components
from 64-bit applications (which is the default ODBC Administrator you get
from Admin. Tools).

The 64-bit components are minimal compared with the 32-bit components.
