VB.Net vs Access vs Deployment

P: n/a
If I create a VB.Net app that connects to an existing, locally installed,
Access (2003) database,

and

create a deployment project which would install the afforemented .mdb file
on the end users machine along with the app, would the end-user need to have
Access 2003 installed to make it all work right?

(I hope this question makes sense)

i.e. they would not need access, or "no" this won't work

You asked if the end user needs Access on their machine, and Kerry said
No - meaning, no they don't need Access installed.

Grumpy,

As addition to YYZ

In fact is it the Jet 4.0 Engine you are using. It has got the name Access
which is using that as well. Although MS Access 2003 can as well use
SQLServer.

I hope this helps,
