Package Wizard

P: n/a
I have just read Larry Linson's reply to another user as follows = "If
you mean the runtime support in "Visual Studio Tools for Office 2003
System", which contains the runtime support for Access 2003, then, yes,
you are correct: that runs only on Windows 2000 Pro with appropriate
Service Packs or later. If you want to distribute Access databases to
users who do not have Access, and are using earlier Operating Systems,
you'll need an earlier version of the runtime which you'll get with
Office 2000 Developer
Edition or Office 97 Developer Edition."
My question is....can I run the Access 97 Package Wizard on Windows
2000 Pro and produce a runtime version of an access database which will
then operate on any operating system from 95, 98, 2000, XP or ME? TIA -

If you save the Windows 2000 database in Access 97 format, you can run the
Packaging and Distribution Wizard to create a runtime. As far as I know, you
cannot run the Access 97 P&DW on an Access 2000 or later format database.

Also, installing a later-than-Access-97 runtime on the machine where an
Access 97 runtime is installed can be problematical.
