msdatasrc.dll in Office 2003 Primary Interop Assemblies (PIAs) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an application that requires msdatasrc.dll, this dll is part of Office 2003/2007 Primary Interop Assemblies (PIAs). The PIAs are installed under C:\Program Files(x86)\Microsoft.NET\Primary Interop Assemblies.

    Can I distribute msdatasrc.dll with my application? Or is there a redistributable package that I can use (the Office Primary Interop Assemblies redistributable package needs office, but I need to be able to install without Office)? Thanks.

  • Hello WJ,

    Yes, you can distribute the PIAs on end users PCs with your software. You can read more about that in the EULA when you run the PIA installer.
