Microsoft Access license to distribute runtime components

What kind of licensing is needed to be able to use the Microsoft Access product
and distribute the applications? In other words, what version of Microsoft Access
does a developer need to buy in order to allow distribution of the runtime components
without incurring any additional license fees per installation of the runtime?

Has this changed very much over the versions of MS Access (especially since Access 2.0)?

The developer's edition includes the royalty-free MS Access distribution
licence.

It's essentially the same thing as use to be called the Access Developers
Toolkit back in the Access 2 days.

And for Office 2003, though there's no Developer Edition, Runtime support
and licensing is in a product called "Visual Studio Tools for Office 2003
System" which also includes VB.NET and C# which can be used instead of VBA
with Word and Excel, but not with Access.

Save yourself a ton of grief, and say: "Everyone using this product must
have an existing, working copy of Microsoft Access versions x, y or z on
their PC".

Whole third-party industries have grown up to get the Access runtime
installations to work correctly in the real world!

Just my 2c,

Good point although Sagekey takes care of pretty much all of these kinds of problems.
More money to be spent by the client of course.

Not to knock your solid solutions, Tony, but my ODE / MOD runtime examples
are quite helpful also -- see at:

Not even Saddam would stoop as low as DPM.
