Create Run time version

P: 1
Please help me. I need to create a run time version of ACCESS 2000 application which will be distributed to customers in a CD. Even if the Customers' machine does not have ACCESS, the application should run itself without any input. Also, it should not request the customer to upgrade to the latest version of ACCESS if they have it on the machine.

Thanks

To the best of my knowledge you can't do this. Access files, even Access executables (.mde's) have to be run in the appropriate version of Access.

The only way I know you can do it is to have the "front end" written in a program like VB, and then compiled to .exe

You would then include the DB file with the program and you would also need to write another program to install the files in the appropriate directory.

Go online and do a search for "Packaging Wizard". It allows you to create databases in MS Access as stand alones.

Apparently, there are a number of them.
