Runtime Version of Access 97
What files are required (ie. dll's) to install a runtime version of Access
97? Do I just need the MSJET35.DLL and the MSRD2X35.DLL or are there other
files required in order for the users of my VB app to access the database?
Re: Runtime Version of Access 97
There's a difference between the runtime version of Access and being able to
use JET in your application. The runtime version of Access is something you
distribute to allow your users to view an Access database so they can run
reports, etc. This means your users can actually double-click on an MDB and
still be able to view the database even though they don't have Access
Distributing JET allows you to use DAO in your code (recordsets, queries,
tabledefs, etc.). To distribute JET nowadays, I *think* you have to install
mdac_typ.exe (this installs ADO, etc., along with DAO). I'm not sure if
there's another way to distribute the DAO libraries (I've only distributed
ADO in the past year or so, and you use mdac_typ for ADO). To distribute
the runtime version of Access, you need to own Microsoft Office Developers
Edition, and all the instructions for distributing the Access runtimes are
in the help files.
Hope I answered the question...
