Using this software, you are able to install components necessary for accessing SQL databases. Additionally, it comes with a wide range of developer tools.
MDAC is a Windows program package designed to help users who are building applications using ADO, OLE DB and ODBC. It provides documentation, headers, libraries for various platforms, as well as samples and developer tools. Currently, it no longer receives updates and is mainly used to fix the SQL database access errors on various operating systems.
Sometimes MySQL Query Browser or other software that works with databases does not launch or switch to SQL mode. This means that after installing an automatic Windows update, the system components responsible for accessing Microsoft Data Access Components are damaged or deleted. In particular, it is necessary to mention two modules such as ActiveX Data Object and OLEDB Providers
Starting with Windows XP SP2 and Server 2003, the MDSC components are considered an integral part of the operating system. In the Windows Vista and Server 2008 versions, they are renamed Windows Data Access Components and are no longer distributed as a separate installer. So, the best solution is to reinstall the operating system or restore it from a backup copy before any database access failure occurs. Alternatively, you may download this software package.
