    If you don't have MOD2000, you cannot legally redistribute the Access Runtime.

    IIRC, you can get Office XP Developer and downgrade to MOD2000.

    Could you please explain the second line of your post. Microsoft says that Office 2000 Developer is no longer available period. How would I be able to downgrade?

    Re: Package and Deployment Wizard (VB6/Access 2k)

    Ok - let me try to re-phrase this. I have Visual Basic 6.0 and have an applet created in VB that I would like to package with a Access front-end and access runtime. Does anyone have any experience doing this?

    Thanks for your help,

    Well,

    They probably mean that MOD2000 is not available for purchase.

    However, if you look at this document http://www.microsoft.com/licensing/downloa...grade_chart.doc, it says that if you company has a Select License and Open License Agreement, you are eligible to downgrade to the previous version of the software if you want/ need to.

    You will need to speak directly with MS (you may need to speak with a few people until you find someone that knows what they are talking about) and tell them that you want to purchase Office XP Developer and downgrade to MOD2000. Ask them how do you go about doing it?

    Looking at www.pricegrabber.com, searching for "Office 2000 Developer", indicates that PCMall is selling licenses for Office 2000 DEveloper. Dunno if that means you can get a copy of the software.

    First, verify this at www.pricegrabber.com, then call PCMall (phone number is listed at www.pcmall.com).

    Re: Package and Deployment Wizard (VB6/Access 2k)

    I'll look into this, although I'm not even sure I can put anything XP related on our computer system. However, if I am able to do as you suggest, any idea as to whether I'll be able to combine a VB package with an Access database and runtime?

    Yopu don't actually install OXP Developer. You have to buy it. Contact MS and tell them that you want to downgrade you OXP developer. They will send you a license for MOD2K. Yuo then install MOD2K.

    It's like an upgrade backwards.

    Package and Deployment Wizard (VB6/Access 2k)

    I'm going to cross-post this so I apologize in advance for any duplication.

    I am trying to update an install package for a Microsoft Access application previously created by my office by an outside consultant. Actually, its a bit more than an update, but anyway...I do not have Office 2000 Developer (and can't seem to get it any longer), I don't have access to the Access Package and Deployment Wizard (PDW). The old application distributed with Access Runtime if the user didn't already have it or Access (full).

    I do have VB6, which has a different PDW that doesn't include the nice check box about adding Access Runtime. I'm not sure if I add the runtime msi file whether the PDW will pick up all the relevant pieces to make this work. Does anyone have any experience with this?

    Re: Package and Deployment Wizard (VB6/Access 2k)

    What do you mean, combine a VB package with an Access database and runtime? If you're packaging a VB app that uses Access for a data store, you don't need the Access runtime because you aren't running Access. If you're trying to include a VB executable with an Access runtime app, you have to use the MOD and include the VB executable in the files packaged.

    Also, do you really need Access?
    A lot of DB stuff can be done from VB 6 (and VBA) just by using DAO or ADO.
