    Hello, you are getting the problem for installing the MDAC 2.8 on your Windows 7 as you are not having checked the System requirements. MDAC 2.8 would not support the Windows 7. So, simply check the System Requirements below:

    • Supported Operating Systems: Windows 2000; Windows 98; Windows ME; Windows NT; Windows XP
    • Available for x86-based computers only

    Hello, you would not able to install the MDAC 2.8 on Windows 7. And I am not getting the reason for which you want to install the MDAC 2.8 on your Windows 7. As your Windows 7 come with the MDAC as an component which will be already installed in your Windows 7. And it is having greater version than the one which you are trying to install. So, simply don't worry about the MDAC 2.8 installation as it is already installed in your computer. But, it is integrated with your Windows 7 with the name of the WDAC. But, if you are having problem with the WDAC then you can solve that problem with the help of the Microsoft help center.

    Hey, I was also getting the same problem while installing the MDAC 2.8 on my computer. I was needed to install it one of the application which I want to install need to have the MDAC 2.8 on your computer. So, I try to install it and fail to do that. Then I simply updated my computer with the HofFixes and different updates from the Microsoft and then simply restart my computer. And then I try to install the same application and it got installed without any kind of error message. So, if you are having any kind of similar issue then simply update your windows and get your problem solved.
