Access Run Time: Alternative Version

Hello everyone

I just found at the adress below Microsoft Access Run Time. It says
that this is Access Run Time :Alternative Version.
There is nothing about who can download or install this version.
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...DisplayLang=en

It can be downloaded. I downloaded and install it and it works just
fine.

Can anyone tell me if it is OK to distribute this "Alternativ e
Version" to those that do not have full Microsoft Access installed on
their system or point them to this web site to download for
themselves.

Thank you
Any thoughts on this subject will be greatly appreciated.

They didn't do a good job of saying so "on that particular page", but
elsewhere on MS site it clearly indicates that the download is intended for
people who had previously purchased Office 2000 Developer and wanted a
runtime with a smaller footprint. I wish I had a link to that particular
page, but it was posted in one of these groups not too long ago.

Bottom line is that there appears to be nothing preventing you from
distributing it or at least pointing other people to the download link, but
it would be a violation of the EULA from what I have read.

I have an Access Project as a front end for a SQL DB. I have a master copy and distribute copies of it to my other users. I would like to display a revision count on the first Main Form so that when looking at the copies on other user's machines I can tell right away if they are working with the latest version. A Last revisied date would work too but it needs to be the last revision or number of revisions to the front end itself.

Hi to all! A customer of mine told me some days ago that her IT-people told her ACCESS would not be such a good idea for continuing with our project, because Access will not be continued in the future. I haven't heard of this. Does anybody know more about it? The IT-People usually prefer Oracle. If they really want to go in this direction, could our Access-application (if continued) be used as a front end with an Oracle back end? Does...

If you develop for others, you probably have multiple versions of Access installed so you can edit and create MDEs for clients in different versions. This works fine under Windows XP, even with Access 2007 installed. It does *not* work under Windows Vista Ultimate. After running Access 2007, when you open an earlier version of Access, no code works, because the references are fouled up. And Access 97 does not work at all. Access should...

Hello all We have an Access 95 database which holds a lot of our customer data. We are running the database in Access 2007 and in the main it's fine.
