Hi, I'm making a project on Visual Basic. It's biology self-teacher, and it has integrated quiz. The questions for the different quizes are grouped in different tables in a database. It works, however, but there is a tiny problem. Which drivers to include in the setup package to make the program run on all computers? I am making the setup package on Inno Setup, because I can't make a bulgarian language installation on the Package and Deployment Wizard. So here is my Inno Setup script files part :

The problem is that it doesn't work fine on my Win98SE laptop, well actually it works but the quiz doesn't start or starts with empty Question and Answers labels. I also tried it on the computers in my school, and it works fine, but they all have VB installed and it is not a surprise.

I included MDAC_TYP.exe (as you can see it's included in the package and starts automaticaly thanks to the [RUN] section, which you don't see) and even tried with DCOM98, but - nothing! I am using the ADODC with Jet 3.51 provider. What to do? Is there a ready package with the needed driver which I can include (ike the VB Runtime packs, or something).
