Runtime - General question (Access 2002)
One of our business areas is getting ready to migrate from Office/Access 97 to Office/Access XP. In hope of saving some XP Professional licenses, they want to use Access 2002 Runtime (as we understand that only a license is required for the developer's copy and not for the pcs that get the Runtime version of the application. Is that still true?).
The general question: is Access Runtime totally self-contained so that the client pcs won't need anything (eg dlls) from an installation of Access 2002? The pcs will just have Office XP 'Standard' version.
Thank you in advance.

Re: Runtime - General question (Access 2002)
To be able to distribute Access Runtime, you will need to get one copy of the Office XP Developer Edition. I don't know if it is still available, since Office 2003 has been out for quite a while now. The Office Developer Edition gives you an unlimited royalty-free license to distribute the runtime version of Access. This runtime version will have to be installed on each client PC. The Office Developer Edition contains a tool to create an installation package for your database and Access Runtime.
There is no Office 2003 Developer Edition. Instead, Microsoft released Visual Studio Tools for Office, which includes Access Developer Extensions. See Obtain and deploy the Access 2003 runtime.
