If you use the setup wizard it will include the Jet engine data drivers for your program. You can install a VB program that uses Access data files no matter what is on the target system. Have several programs I've shipped out to users with neither access nor Excel and had 'em work 100% out of the box. I normally create the .MDB file on the fly, so I can't guarentee that a .MDB created with Access directly and then included will work. But if you create your data structures on demand, then yes, that works.

As for your other error, please post more info. There are a couple of times that the Setup wizard stumbles that are unrelated to database access.
