Is it possible to create a runtime A97 app that runs from a CD only?

More to the point...
Is it possible for me to install a runtime set of
A97 executables onto a CD, give it to some-
one, let them pop it into their PC, dbl-click an
icon on CD and have it launch the runtime
version of Access (on the CD) and open
the mde file (on the CD).

The obvious fact is that one could not write
to the CD. Not a problem. Don't need to.
I'm wondering where the ldb file could be
created, as I know that'll be an issue.

No, it's not possible.

The runtime must be installed on the computer: it cannot run without being
installed.

They would need to install the Access run-time to their HD. While you're
at it you might as well install the MDE as well.

If it can't create an LDB it will open read-only, single user.

If you really wanna know what will happen why don't you try it??
