    I would like to try out the ADE features without the expense of purchasing
    the full edition of Visual Studio Tools which, as I understand it, is the
    only product that contains the ADE component - unless someone out there knows
    differently!
    So if anyone is willing to share (or sell) their copy, please get in touch.

    VSTO has the developer's edition which allows the licensing and distribution
    of runtime Access files. You can build and MDE or ADE without the
    developer's edition. You cannot package and distribute it.

    Hi, Dave.

    The Access Developer Extensions (ADE) comes as part of the standalone
    version of Visual Studio Tools for Office 2003 (VSTO) or with the VSTO in the
    Universal version of the MSDN subscription. And you may have the expense of
    upgrading in order to use it. Either Microsoft Office Access 2003 or
    Microsoft Office 2003 Professional is required to be installed on the
    developer's computer before the ADE is installed, so it can't be used with an
    earlier version of Access. And Access 2003 requires the .Net Framework 1.1,
    which means that Windows 2000 SP-4 or Windows XP is required.

    You won't be able to "share" a copy or have someone lend you their CD's --
    at least not legally. If you read the EULA, it allows transfer of ownership
    of a registered owner to another (and only _one_ transfer is allowed), as
    long as certain guidelines are met. So if you "borrow" it, the ownership is
    transferred to you -- and you can't give it back to the original owner. Some
    folks might be willing to sell you their copy of VSTO if they have no use for
    it when they purchased the MSDN Universal subscription, but you'll need to
    negotiate a fair price because while the standalone VSTO is expensive, the
    MSDN Universal subscription is far more expensive and they'll want to offset
    some of this cost if they sell you the VSTO.

    If you want a "try before you buy" type of scenario, find someone who has
    the ADE installed on his laptop and ask if you can borrow his laptop for a
    few days. Other than that, you might try Ebay, but buyer beware because
    software sold on Ebay isn't always legit.

    HTH.

    Note that this is the VSTO or Visual Studio Tools for Office which
    contains the ADE. Not Visual Studio Tools.

    Gunny, I know you know this, but it seemed to me that what you wrote might
    be subject to misinterpretation. Let me restate:

    "If somone already owned a standalone copy of VSTO, and no longer needs that
    standalone copy because they have a copy that came with a
    subsequently-purchased MSDN Universal..."

    Whether or not you need all the items that come with MSDN Universal, they
    cannot be disposed of separately, and they cannot be used, per the license,
    for anything other than development. The only exception is that you are
    permitted to use the included copy of Office for personal use, IIRC.

    Re: does anyone have a trial version of Access Developer Extension

    A big thank you to all you guys that responded. You all seem to be making the
    point that ADE is only available through VSTO and that certain pre-requisites
    apply (e.g. Access 2003 already installed).
    There seems to be some confusion though about the 'legality' of a
    transferred copy. Are you saying that someone who, having purchased VSTO, and
    who no longer has a use for it, cannot sell it on to someone else?

    PS. I am still looking to buy VSTO
