Access Developer's Edition

P: n/a
Hi all,

I'm interested in getting the Access Developer's edition.

Here's my question: where do I go to get it? At Microsoft, there's a Access
2003 Developer's Extensions package, as well as some other packages with
mention the .Net framework. ($499 was the price tag on that, which was what I
was expecting for the Developer's edition of Access.)

Also, I have purchased a copy of Visual C# .Net Standard edition and I hope to
eventually move to using this for front-ends. If I wanted to distribute this
for profit, what license, if any, do I need to obtain?

I guess the bottom line question is: what do I need to do to get in to develop-
ing Access/.Net for profit?

One more: is the MSDN subscription a good investment?

Thanks for your expert guidance,
Johnny

Sounds about right.

I suspect nothing but you should ask in a C# newsgroup. Do note that this will
likely take you several times longer to develop the same product as it would in
Access.

See above. Do note that the runtime system isn't perfect. Follow the above
mentioned URL to the problems area.

MSDN Universal comes with Office 2003 Professional and the ADE which is, what, $1100
US? Then you get the other goodies. You are the only one who can decide if the
expense is worth it.

You need to purchase the following in order to create an Access 2003 runtime
application:

- Microsoft Access 2003
- Visual Studio Tools for Office 2003 (which includes the Access 2003
Developer Extensions)

The ADE is the product that gives you the license to deploy the 2003 runtime
components and you have to have Access 2003 installed in order to install
the ADE.

I think a MSDN subscription a good investment, but it's not a decision you
can really make for someone else <g>
