MDAC installation hangs....

By robert_dio ·
Hey all,

I am trying to update to the MDAC 2.7 version. I have an NT 4.0 SP6 machine that the installation hangs on.

I can start the exe and see the files unzipping to temporary space, but the wizard window never reveals anything. All I have is a blank grey window with a cancel button on it. I let this install run for over 20 minutes.

The dasetup logfile shows this as the last entry before I cancel the install:

Creating Wizard: Microsoft Data Access Components 2.7 Setup

Any suggestions?

Is it SP6 or 6A

Just a thought but 6a was the last SP for nt4.0. I've installed 2.7 on w2k server w/o issues.

SP6 High Encryption

by robert_dio In reply to Is it SP6 or 6A

The sp6i386 High Encryption pack. I am also finding out that this particular machine had Front Page 2000 and PWS installed on it at one point. I am wondering if something leftover is getting in the way.
