How to install MS Jet 4.0 OLE DB? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Am I right when trying to install MS Jet 4.0 on Windows XP using installer for MS JET 4.0 Service Pack 8?

    MS Knowledge Base says that MS Jet 4.0 Service Pack 8 installs to windows/system32 file msjetoledb40.dll. But this file is absent after installer finished.

    Can you recommend guaranteed way to install MS Jet 4.0?

    May be I need to install MDAC 2.8... Or check firewall which could block MS Jet Installer..

  • Per our support engineer:

    The OLEDB 4.0 had been included in MDAC 2.1. You can install that or the new version of MDAC.

    MS Jet 4.0 Service Pack 8 is just some patch files, not the whole program.
