It actually does, it is version 2.81.
I found this resolusion in another thead on another forum:
OK, how to repair a copy of MDAC 2.8 on WinXP with SP2 installed
first, locate the mdac.inf file in c:\windows\inf right click and
when prompted for a location, point to
c:\windows\servicepackfiles\i386 then when promtpet for the XPcd,
either load the cd or point to c:\i386
hey presto, this reinstalls / repairs MDAC 2.8
