    Runtime Access (97/2000/2003)

    When using runtime Access, is the installation of Access required on the target machine?

    Is compliling a db into an MDE making it run time?


    Is there a good place to learn more about runtime Access?



    Thanks
    Richard

    The runtime version of Access is essentially a regular version of Access in which the ability to create and modify objects (forms, reports, etc.) has been removed. As a developer, you can obtain the runtime version for deployment with your application. Prior to Office2003, there was an Office Developer's Edition that included the runtime. Now, it is part of Visual Studio Tools.

    Making a .mde file has nothing to do with the runtime. A .mde database is merely a compiled version of a regular database, so that the code behind it is not maintainable.

    Tip If Microsoft Access is installed on a user's machine, you can test your run-time application by copying the file mso9rt.dll to the user's ..Program FilesCommon FilesMicrosoft SharedVBAVBA6 folder.
