I have an MS Access 2.0 database that I wish to distribute to a lot of unconnected sites, that may not have a copy of Access.  What do I need to do to create a stand alone Access application that just requires a run time licence?  Is this functionality included in standard Access?

No, it is not included in Access. You have to buy the Microsoft Access Developers Tollkit seperately.

Hi, as said before, you need to get the Access Developers Toolkit.  You will encounter the following problem(s)

1)  You will probably not find the Developers Tookkit for Access 2 anymore.

2)  The Developers Toolkit for Access 2 is pretty much Access 2, installed with the minimal options, and the Microsoft Access screen shown when you open access won't show.

3)  It has many problems with some objects or ole's

4)  I frankly recomend you convert that application into a C++/Delphi/Visual Basic written interfase, and use access as your database mannager.

P.S.  I have the Developers Toolkit for Access 2
