Install Shield VB 6.0 Project... Bundling a MS Access Database

Here goes...

Outlook 2003 -> Access -> Crystal Reports ...via VB 6.0 code

Basically I have a VB 6.0 project working on my machine.

All with the click of a button , the Vb code extracts rows from the
Calender folder of Outlook 2003, and makes a table in Access based on
these rows and then a crystal report is created.

The question is...I have bundled this project with Install
Shield...what do I need to have on a client's machine in order for
this to work there.

I know I going to need Outlook 2003 ( I know) and crystal reports ( I
think) installed on the clients machine.
I don't think VB 6.0 will be needed, seeing Install Sheild will have
grabbed the necessary files to make it run.

My big concern is where I am creating a table in Access via VB 6.0
code will I need to have MS Access fully installed on the client's
machine....anyway to bundle up a database with the project.

Any help or insight would be much appreciated ....very lost

I haven't used installshield recently, but I expect that
it will read the VBP project file, and attempt to include
any referenced objects.

If it doesn't, open the .VBP project file in a text editor,
make a note of any referenced objects, and include them
in your installshield project.

If you have any 'late bound' objects, not mentioned in
your VB Project, you will have to make sure they are
installed as well.

Your description does not seem to include any use of
the Access Application object, so it is unlikely that
you will need to have Access installed on your target
machine.
