MDAC issue when installing on Vista

I'm trying to move my FogBugz installation to a Vista box but during the install (version 6.1.44), I'm getting stuck at the Database page as it claims I need a new version of MDAC. From what I understand, Vista comes with a newer version of MDAC (Windows DAC 6.0) than anything you can download.

I've tried installing MDAC anyway and it just disappears when I click Allow.

I can't believe I'm the only one to run into this problem but I haven't been able to find any information on it.

The problem seems to have been two part:
1.) The install was running in Compatibility mode and so the installer wasn't recognizing that it was installing under Vista. Moving the install file to the desktop seems to have fixed that.
2.) ASP wasn't installed. Once we moved the install file, there was a nice clear error stating ASP wasn't installed and installing ASP finally got me past the initial DB screen.
