SDAC

Deployment

SDAC requires OLE DB to be installed on the workstation. In current versions of Microsoft Windows, as Windows 2000, OLE DB is already included as standard package. But it is highly recommended to download the latest version (newer than 2.5) of Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC).

Many features of SQL Server like Query Notifications, MARS require Microsoft SQL Server Native Client. If you need to use these features, you should  download and install Microsoft SQL Server Native Client.

For applications that use SQL Server Compact Edition, the server itself is required to be installed on the client computer.

In order to use extended abilities of UDT fields , you will need to deploy the Devart.Sdac.UDTProxy.dll file with your application. This file should be present in the directory with your application, or registered in GAC.

SDAC applications can be built and deployed with or without run-time libraries. Using run-time libraries is managed with the "Build with runtime packages" check box in the Project Options dialog box.

Deploying Windows applications built without run-time packages

You can check that your application does not require run-time packages by making sure the "Build with runtime packages" check box is not selected in the Project Options dialog box.

Trial Limitation Warning

If you are evaluating deploying Windows applications with SDAC Trial Edition, you will need to deploy the following BPL files:

dacXX.bpl always
sdacXX.bpl always

and their dependencies (required IDE BPL files) with your application, even if it is built without run-time packages:

rtlXX.bpl always
dbrtlXX.bpl always
vcldbXXX.bpl always

Deploying Windows applications built with run-time packages

You can set your application to be built with run-time packages by selecting the "Build with runtime packages" check box in the Project Options dialog box before compiling your application.

In this case, you will also need to deploy the following BPL files with your Windows application:

dacXX.bpl always
sdacXX.bpl always
dacvclXX.bpl if your application uses the SdacVcl unit
sdacvclXX.bpl if your application uses the SdacVcl unit
crcontrolsXX.bpl if your application uses the CRDBGrid component
