    I was counting with the Office Developer Toolkit package already purchased,
    as you told before. This was a suggest of how to obtain the latest version
    of Aceess2000, since the latest version of toolkit is for access97.

    Re: MS Access Form - Access 2000 RUNTIME


    Actually ART2KMIN is a version to the Run-Time which DOES not include the
    Exporer 5.0 installation,(which MUST already be present on the target machine,
    or the Run-time WILL NOT function). Becuase it does NOT incude the Exporerer
    insallation, It has a much smaller foot-print hence the MIN ending of the
    program name. It is not necessarily the "lastest" version.

    And this file is only available IF you have licensed Developer 2000, which
    requires an UPGRADE from Developer 97 ($699 cost, I believe, for the Upgrade),
    IF you had a Developer 97 License.
