    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?

    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
    installed.

    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...
