Hi , I am a student and am learning database application design with vb. I made an application using ADODC and the provider MS JET OLEDB 3.51 . It was cool and i was satisfied till i used it in my machine (Win 98 ) . I tried to use it at my frnds place whos using XP pro with SP2 and all I got was an error msg saying " Provider not installed " . I searched the Microsoft Site thoroly and cudnt find a single MDAC which is XP compatible and includes the provider I am looking for. Can anyone tell me what to do. Plz HELP.
