    Hi,
    If I create an application in Access that I wish to sell, using the
    royalty-free runtime Access files from the Visual Studio Tools software, do I
    need to buy a license or anything else. Is there a website where I can learn
    the process?
    Thank you,
    Karl

    If you have already purchased Access 2003 and the Visual Tools software,
    you have already purchased everything you need in terms of licenses.

    Here is a previous post by MVP Doug Steele which may help:

    >>>>>

    You can purchase the Developer Edition of Office*. That allows you to
    package your application together with a royalty-free run-time version of
    Access that your users can install so that they can use your application.

    *Actually, the name is constantly changing.Tony Toews has an overview at
    http://www.granite.ab.ca/access/developereditionfaq.htm that should help you
    figure out what you need.

    Be aware, though, that Microsoft only sells the most recent version of
    Office. With Office 2003, that means you need to purchase the following in
    order to create an Access 2003 runtime application:

    - Microsoft Access 2003
    - Visual Studio Tools for Office 2003 (which includes the Access 2003
    Developer Extensions)

    The ADE is the product that gives you the license to deploy the 2003 runtime
    components and you have to have Access 2003 installed in order to install
    the ADE.

    You obtain the license when you buy the Access 2003 Developer Extensions.

    If you own Visual Studio Tools for Office (VSTO) with the Access Developer
    Extensions (ADE), which gives you an unlimited Runtime license, and have
    Access 2003 or MS Office Professional 2003 to develop the application, then
    that's all you need to distribute the Access 2003 Runtime.
