    It's not entirely clear what you want to do. You may deploy your Access
    application to persons who have a licensed copy of Access, or to whom
    you deploy the Runtime version. Visual Studio cannot help you, unless
    you are creating a seperate application that simply attaches to data stored
    in an Access database.

    > Hi,

    I have developed a Booking system for self catering properties in Access
    2003 and I want to be able to compile the Access Booking System so that my
    end user, who doesn't have a copy of Access 2003 can use the booking system
    that I have developed. According to everything that I am reading, it is
    suggested that the Access Developers Toolkit is now included Visual Studio -
    is that not the case? see:

    Well, that's news to me. What that KB article says is ...

    The Access 2003 Runtime license comes with the Microsoft Office Access 2003 Developer Extensions
    .... which is a component of Microsoft Visual Studio® Tools for the Microsoft Office System.

    A developer who owns Visual Studio Tools for Office can bundle his application (MDB files and any other support files)
    with Access 2003 Runtime and distribute it to as many users as necessary. The physical runtime files are included with
    Microsoft Office 2003 Professional Edition or Microsoft Office Access 2003.

    You still need to use Microsoft Office Access 2003 Developer Extensions to create the runtime. Perhaps it may be
    installed from your VS disks, but you don't create the runtime from Visual Studio.
