Is there any documentation on maintentance/repair mode in a BASIC MSI??????? :mad:

Do you really need that merge module? MDAC 2.7 was released back in 2003 and is included out of the box in Windows XP and beyond. In fact XP SP2 ( SP3 is latest ) includes MDAC 2.8SP1 out of the box.

Are you targeting ancient platforms like Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 2000?

I'm guessing if you just removed that module from your installer you'd find your application still works.
