Install will not install on MS Vista.

Need to ignore the MDAC check if installing to a Vista box since MDAC 6.0? comes with the Vista install.

MDAC installer likewise does not install to Vista.

    modify the two nis scripts:
    mymeta.nsi
    mygeneration.nsi

    find the MDAC27Exists function and modify it thus:
    ; detects MDAC 2.7
    Function MDAC27Exists

    ClearErrors
    ReadRegStr $1 HKLM "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\DataAccess" "FullInstallVer"
    IfErrors MDACNotFound MDACFound

    MDACFound:
    StrCpy $2 $1 3

    StrCmp $2 "2.7" MDAC27Found
    StrCmp $2 "2.8" MDAC27Found
    StrCmp $2 "6.0" MDAC27Found
    Goto MDACNotFound

    MDAC27Found:
    Push 0
    Goto ExitFunction

    MDACNotFound:
    Push 1
    Goto ExitFunction

    MDAC is automatically skipped for vista even if it's checked. This is fixed.
