Looking for the version of my MDAC


There are 2 ways to check the Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) version on a system, you can check the information from the registry or use the Component Checker Tool. To use the Component Checker Tool, download first the MDAC Component Checker Utility at http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=1953. Download only the right version for your computer. After downloading, double-click on the file to install it on your computer. When the MDAC Component Checker Utility is already installed, here’s how you can use it.

  1. Click Start then Run.
  2. Type c:CompCheckerCC.exe then hit Enter.
  3. Click on Analysis Type then select Perform Analysis of your machine and automatically determine the release version.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Wait for it to finish checking all core MDAC files and registry settings. After checking your computer, you will receive a message like the one described in the image below.

Using the registry, here’s how you can check the MDAC version.
