A2003 Developers Edition

P: n/a
OK I'm confused. Which variant of the Visual Studio for Office 2003 do I
need to develop runtime Access apps? All the links on the MS site seem to
lead to the Office 2007 page.

Thanks.

Hi, Keith.
Which variant of the Visual Studio for Office 2003 do I need to develop
runtime Access apps?
You need Visual Studio Tools for Office (VSTO), which includes the Access
Developer Extensions (ADE), and you need either Microsoft Office Access 2003
or Microsoft Office 2003 Professional. The current VSTO available for sale
is VSTO 2005, but VSTO 2003 may be available if you look hard enough
(perhaps eBay). Many, but not all of the versions of VSTO 2003 included the
ADE, so make sure that your copy includes the ADE if you purchase the
previous version.

Thanks Gunny, I didn't realise that the 2003 version had been superseded.
My employer would be purchasing it so I guess we're going to have to do some
digging.

Keith.

You're welcome. The other bad news is that VSTO 2005 is a good deal more
expensive than VSTO 2003 was.
