If you are hunting at what I am thinking following does the trick.

function IsADOHighEnough: Boolean;
with TRegistry.Create do
if OpenKeyReadOnly('ADODB.Recordset\CurVer') then
Result:=ReadString('')>>= 'ADODB.RecordSet.2.6';

The registry key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\DataAccess\FullInstallVer has

This is not 100% reliable. Under Windows ME, 2000 and

I need to write a small app that will return the MDAC version number and the
MS Jet version number. Can someone show me how to get this information?

This may help.

The note says that the version is stored in this registry key,
but is only useful if the MDAC install is good.

try that one:

format('ADO-Version: "%s"',[dm1.adoconnection1.version]) ;

for the ADO Version. For Jet I don't know.

You can also use the IVersion interface that newer MDAC versions
implement. It has Major, Minor, Buld, and Qfe attributes.
