Shipping ADODB.dll. Is it a redistributable file? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am referring to the assembly ADODB.DLL ('ADODB, Version=7.0.3300.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a' ) inside my code. Its working fine and serving the desired purposes :). And for my product to work this dll must either be on the GAC of target machine or i must ship ADODB.dll along with the product.

    So I have doubts when doing this..

    1. Can we ship(/redistribute) ADODB.dll with my product. Is it legal to do so since ADODB is not listed in "redist" file list

    2. If not, is there are any other open installers that installs ADODB.dll. So i can call those installers within my product's installer.

    Thanks in advance
