Distributing the Access run-time - which version of VSTO?

P: n/a
Most of my projects are developed in Access 2003. I have not even installed
Office 2007 yet!

I need to buy VSTO to get the run-time licence for Access 2003. No doubt I
will soon need a run-time licence for Access 2007. Is there a version of
VSTO that has the Access run-time licence for both version of Access? Or
will I need to buy VSTO 2003 now and then VSTO 2007 at a later date?

Thanks,

Paul

Hi, Paul.
Is there a version of VSTO that has the Access run-time licence for both
version of Access?
Historically, each of the developers' versions of Office have contained the
unlimited licence to distribute the Access Runtime version for only that
version of Office. I doubt VSTO for Office 2007 will be any different.
It's scheduled to come out in March. For more information, please see the
following Web page:

The current version of VSTO is 2005. Please see the following Web page for

You're welcome, Paul. The Access Developer Extensions for Access 2003
allowed one to package the Access 2003 Runtime with an Access 2000 or 2002
database. I suspect the Access Developer Extensions (or whatever the new
name will be) for Access 2007 will allow packaging of earlier versions,
also, but there's no guarantee that will be the case. Therefore, you may
want to ask Clint Covington in his blog whether or not the new VSTO 2007
will be capable of packaging earlier Access version databases (or if it's
even recommended), or you may want to wait for VSTO 2007 to come out and see
for yourself.
