    Can Program run without MS Access


    I developed a VB program that reads a small Access table using an ADO control.
    The program runs fine on my computer. I used the package and deployment
    wizard without problems to create a setup disk. But when I install the
    program on another computer I get Registration errors during the install
    and the program runs but can't read the Access table. Must Access be installed
    on every computer that uses my program?

    No. but you need ADO installed though.
    Did you include mdac_typ.exe (it installs ADO) in the installation package?

    Getting registration errors during the install? What exactly?

    If the program is not to big, zip it with winzip. Recompile using
    an ODBC connection string, then copy the database to the pc and use the
    ODBC Data Sources icon in the control panel to set-up a User DSN (Data Source
    Name)
    The dsn is the name you created for your connection string. I think you can
    do
    this with ADO, also. ODBC works on more platforms than ADO does.

    Hope this helps.
