I have a vba program and a vb executable. When I fire them up the microsoft access installer or sometimes the office installer fires up. WHy in the hell is this happening. It is quite annying to have to cancel the installer everytime I want to run one of these apps.

I suspect you are attempting to use some component of Office or Access that is not currently installed from your VB program.

Are you testing under different users?  Usually this will occur the first time you run an office application on a Win2k machine for the first time.  Let it complete with the appropriate media and it should not happen any more.

If you have room i would have office installed on a network drive and allow it to be referenced as a network install instead of a local that way it one removes the option of having to carry the CD or Cancel out, as jhance stated there is most likely a tool that office needs on the first time ran for that profile on each system.
