Package my Access 97 application with your Sagekey software

P: n/a
I have an Access 97 database I've developed to be distributed as an MDE
with the A97 Runtime. I've got the application completed to the point
I'm ready to begin testing on other machines, but the application won't
install reliably using the ODE Wizard.

If you own a copy of Sagekey, I will pay you a fee to package my app
rather than my having to purchase a copy just to complete this project.

As an alternative, I was thinking I could purchase a software license
then sell it on eBay after I complete the project. I wonder if the
license agreement would prevent me from doing that?

Have you tried asking Sagekey if they would issue you a license on a
percentage of gross sales basis? I wouldn't be surprised if they would.

If you end up selling a lot of copies, you might end up just buying a copy at
the regular price, later, but you'd start getting your ROI now, and wouldn't
have to hassle with going through another 3rd party.

I developed the app as a free download from my website. It's a bulk
uploader of classified ads that the user can operate from the desktop.
So there's no revenue to speak of.

Please disregard my earlier post. I found out that having someone
package someone else's app for a fee is a violation of the Sagekey
license agreement. I wouldn't ask anyone to do that.

A friend suggested offering my application to folks who already own a
copy of Access or could be encouraged to purchase a copy. This idea
works for me since I can begin cultivating new database development
clients this way. Hey. What a great idea!
