    Hello,

    We develop a software solution based on MSDE 2000 and Access 2000 runtime.
    We've got MSDN Universal subscription.
    Is it correct that MSDN Universal subscription is enough to have a
    distribution license?

    Thanks

    Hi, Tom.

    Sorry. It's not quite that simple. MSDN subscriptions are in the middle of
    a transition and you'll likely have a "Premium" subscription, not the
    "Universal" one you originally purchased. For more information, please see
    the following Web pages:

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/products/subscriptions/transition/default.aspx

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/products/subscriptions/chart/

    Therefore, you need the Access Developer Extensions that comes with some
    versions of Visual Studio Tools For Office 2005 in order to get the unlimited
    redistribution license for the Access 2003 Runtime. The good news is that
    this comes with your current MSDN subscription. The bad news is that it
    doesn't automatically give you a license to redistribute the Access Runtime
    for any other version. That said, the Access 2003 Runtime can run Access
    2000 databases, although I'm not sure if there are any problems with MSDE
    2000 database applications other than the usual headaches of the Package and
    Deployment Wizard, as I've never tried it.

    Hi,

    1. Does it make a difference that are having MSDN subscription
    for many years, before Access 2003 has been released?

    Is where any way to purchase Access 2000 runtime redistribution license?

    2. What about MSDE 2000 redistribution license? Does it come with MSDN
    subscription (Premium or Enterprise) ?

    Thanks.

    Yes. If you have the paperwork (i.e., Certificate of Authentication or
    other paperwork that proves to Microsoft you own the Microsoft Office 2000
    Developer Edition) for the Access 2000 Runtime, then you're good to go.

    > Is where any way to purchase Access 2000 runtime redistribution license?


    If you don't already own Microsoft Office 2000 Developer Edition, then
    you'll have to find someone who will sell it to you, because Microsoft
    doesn't sell it any more. Perhaps you can find a bargain in an eBay online
    auction, at http://www.eBay.com, or one of the online used software vendors
    might have the older versions of Microsoft Office Developer for sale from
    time to time. Check any of the following for current availability and
    prices:

    http://www.emsps.com/oldtools/msacc.htm
    http://www.emsps.com/oldtools/msoff.htm

    The MSDE 2000 redistribution license came with Visual Studio 6.0 and
    Microsoft Office Professional Edition on up (Premium, ODE, et cetera), but I
    don't remember exactly which version of Office authorized MSDE 2000, because
    it came out after the first MSDE version. It was either Office 2000 Pro or
    Office XP Pro. It's possible that the MSDE 2000 redistribution license also
    came with Visual Studio 2002 .Net, but I don't know for sure. Check your
    EULA's for the Microsoft products you own.

    If you have the developer tools for Access 2000 then there's nothing
    to stop your distributing things based on Access 2000. It's just that
    those tools wont support distributing later versions.

    Also, MSDE is a freebie. You can distribute that WITH YOUR
    APPLICATION whether or not you have the developer tools.

    I looked in the SQL Server 2000 BOL Jan. '04 edition, which had links to
    Microsoft's lists of products which came with the redistribution license for
    MSDE 2000, but all the links went nowhere. I finally found this link, which
    explains that this downloadable version of the MSDE 2000 is free for new
    installations:

    Our current MSDN does not contain Office Developer 2000,
    but we have also MSDN subscription for the years when MSDN was containing
    Office Developer 2000.
    Does it mean that we own Access 2000 runtime redistribution license now?

    Thanks.

    Yes. With or without any other license you have the right to
    promulgate an Access application you create to the whole wide world.

    For those years/versions for which you do have the developer tools you
    can freely distribute the RUNTIME version of Access with (and only
    with) your application. The developer tools will help you create
    installation setups that you can ship out on CD/DVD or over the net.
    The developer tools must be those supplied for the version of Access
    of your application.

    If your customers already have retail Access then you can simply
    distribute your application, including MSDE if applicable, to them
    without needing the developer tools. I recommend that you distribute
    the front end as an MDE so that others can't mess with your code.

    It sure sounds like it. Do you have a receipt for your MSDN subscription
    purchase from any of the years when the Microsoft Office 2000 Developer
    Edition was part of the MSDN subscription, or do you have your Certificate
    of Authenticity and Product Key for your copy of Microsoft Office 2000
    Developer Edition? Those are sufficient evidence that would survive a
    Microsoft audit.

    We have MSDN for previous years which contain MS Office 2000 Developer,
    but we did not buy MS Office Developer 2000 itself as a separate product.
    The question is whether we are permitted to redistribute Access 2000 runtime
    with our application?

    Thanks.

    Hi, Tom.

    > The question is whether we are permitted to redistribute Access 2000
    > runtime
    > with our application?


    Do you have in your hand the MS Office 2000 Developer Edition Certificate of
    Authenticity and the Product Key? If so, then you may redistribute the
    Access 2000 Runtime.

    An alternative is to have a receipt in your hand for your MSDN subscription
    in any year that MS Office 2000 Developer Edition was an item listed as part
    of your MSDN subscription. If you don't know which years that the MS Office
    2000 Developer Edition was part of the MSDN subscriptions you previously
    purchased, then please contact Microsoft Product Service Support, because
    they no longer have this list on their public Web site. If you have a proof
    of purchase of one of the correct MSDN subscriptions, then you may
    redistribute the Access 2000 Runtime. Plenty of them didn't offer MS Office
    2000 Developer Edition, so make sure that you have the receipt for the
    purchase of a subscription that did, if you didn't keep the Certificate of
    Authenticity and Product Key.

    Remember that your current MSDN subscription allows redistribution of the
    Access 2003 Runtime, so you may use that if you don't have proof of
    ownership of the MS Office 2000 Developer Edition from your previous MSDN
    subscriptions.

    HTH.

    The Office 2000 Developer tools you received via your MSDN
    subscription is exactly the same in all respects as if you had
    purchased it separately.
