Default distributing runtime for DB access

hello, having trouble when distributing my DB app. letting setup wizard include every last file it thinks is a depency, still getting an error stating the provider isn't found or isn't installed. here is the relevant part of my connection string..

DSN=MS Access Database;DriverId=25;FIL=MS Access

works ok on the developement machines, but on an end-user machine without VB installed when the referenced ADO connection object tries to execute the connection string, ole pops an error stating that the provider cannot be found, or is not installed. any help on what files or package I need to distribute with the app to avoid this?

I don't think there is a jet distribution (it comes with M$-Access). What you need IMHO, is the Access Run Time (it enables people to open Access-DB without having M$-Access installed), but I think this comes only with the Office Developer Edition.
