I have developed a program that uses access database. Most of the client machines does not have access. How can I do the packaging so that when the client run the program after installation, the program works fine with access runtime files.

Make a set up package using Package and Deployment wizard. That takes care of all the dependencies that your program may be having.Also, please see that mdac_typ.exe is included with your package

At your project , as long as you select the reference for access database .
after you complate make an Package and Deployment wizard which include above reference in your project , then you install it , you will be able to run your programs , include update , add and delete . BUT you are unable to open(double click) access database if you want to troubleshoot the contents in user workstation.This is what I normally done.

Hope can solve for you.

You dont require Access at client end to run VB applications that use Access. If you are using DAO then you need to install Microsoft Ject engine at client side and if you are using ADO then MDAC needs to be installed. Although PDW does include MDAC, but it is MDAC 2.1. I would recommond installing MDAC 2.7 refresh as it is free from most of the bugs and also is compatible with lower versions of ADO.

You can download MDAC 2.7 from following link:
http://www.microsoft.com/data/

Remove MDAC 2.1 and paste MDAC 2.7 in the following folder, where PDW stores MDAC 2.1 on your development machine:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\ODETools\V9\PDWizard\Redist
