How do I distribute an .exe with an .mdb access file to users?
Posted on 2003-11-04
Using VC++6, I was able to create an .exe file that connects to an .mdb Access database file, which I used the ODBC Data Source Administrator to add a data source name assigned to it.
The program works fine in my local machine. However when I distributed both the .exe file and the .mbd file to other users they could not execute it, unless they also have to use their ODBC Data Source Administrator to add the database name.
How do I make it transparent to the users so they don't have to do that step? i.e. All they need to do is to execute the .exe file and run it.
