Microsoft Data Access Components not compatible with XP SP3!!
Friday - Oct 3rd 2008 - by - (0 comments)
Hola@everybody! This week I've found a weird behavior of a software. The goal was to import data from an excel (xls) file to a local installed database. When trying to import the excel file an error occurred with a missing ODBC driver. So I tried to manually install the MDAC package to give the affected machine the needed ODBC drivers. It was then when I realized that the MDAC 2.8 software is not compatible with Windows XP Service Pack 3!! So before you install SP3, be sure you're not going to use database software which needs an internal ODBC driver. I sent a mail to the Microsoft guys but of course didn't hear anything. Let's hope they fix that.
