I've had SIMILAR messages come up with some of the support files I try to package with the P&D Wizard. Some ideas:
Check your setup.lst file for a line under [FILES] that looks kinda like the following
File55firstname.lastname@example.org,$(WinSysPathSysFile),$(DLLSelfRegister),,8/4/99 7:17:18 PM,1050384,3.51.3203.0
This has to do with the dependancy information for this file, and chances are you either had the wrond dependancy or no dependancy info for this particular file when creating the package with the P&D wizard. Look at the lines above and below it, specifically where the DLL self register belongs, and see if it can be changed to one of those other key constants. Also, make sure the person installing has Admin rights on the machine. The MSDN search site has recently been changed, so the search is almost useless now, but I recall a problem with another file where mickeysoft accidentally put the wrong dependancy info in, and thus DLLSelfRegister was something else entirely, and should not have been. Hope it helps!

The file msado20.tlb cannot be registered as is. It is contained in an EXE called MDAC_typ.exe and can be found here ...http://search.microsoft.com/gomsuri.asp?n=1&c=rp_BestBets&siteid=us&target=http://www.microsoft.com/data/download.htm
You need to include this file in your package when using ADO. (5 Mb)
Hallo Mr Robby,
Thanks for your response. I've download MDAC_TYP.EXE ver 2.6, and I've included it during making P&D. But it still gave me the same problem. Could you please give me which version of MDAC_TYP.EXE it suppose to be.
Thanks a lot...
