Access 95 and compile

Can you compile Access 95 application into an executable file to be able to distribute to other users who do not have Access.

Visual Basic certainly uses the same database engine as
Access, and you can compile VB code and it will run on a
system that does not have either Access or VB; you need some
VB DLLs, VBRUNnnn, et.al. but when you buy VB you get the rights
to distribute them.

Access is an interface that managers and other non-programmers
can buy to write their own queries, reports, etc for such a
database.

When running the application (once it has been compiled with VB and Access to store the data) does the application run fast or is it slow?  Also, is there lots of problems communicating between Access and VB?  IF there is some problems communicating between the two, or an error occurs is it more likely to be from VB or from Access?
