Thread: install for 8.5 build 3572?

  1. install for 8.5 build 3572?

    I downloaded the install for build 3572 for version 8.5, and started the
    extraction. The extraction filled up my hard drives. I had several gigs
    free. Does anyone know how much space this extraction needs. Looking at
    the install instructions it only mentions 35mb of hd space needed. Thanks
    in advance.

    Looking at what's going on it's the mdactypi.exe file in
    ....\temp\winnt\install\mdac\i386\eng

    This file has extracted to a size of 5.2 gig and is climbing. Is it
    supposed to be that large?

    Total extract is about 152 MB

    that executable should be 6.358KB
