P: n/a
Can I use MDB database in shareware type application? This is desktop app
(developed in VB) using Access Database through OLEDB... Do I have to have a
licence? (Is the licence needed only for clients, e.g. MS Access appliction)

If you own a version of Visual Basic other than the Learning Edition, then
you have the necessary license to distribute a Jet database with your
application.

According to the redist.txt document in my C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual
Studio .NET folder, you can distribute the JetSetup.exe file. Note that,
like you, I own VB.Net, not VS.net

Do I have to? If user has .net framework installed, won't the application
work?

Is the Jet database engine automatically installed as part of the .NET
framework? I was not aware that it is.
