The file you mention is a Type Library so no, the runtime would not contain that file. It's part of the DAO library and would typically be distributed with that library (or with Internet Explorer, or any of several other MS files).

Are you having issues with a runtime installation?

Also, so we're clear - by "runtime" you mean you're distributing the Access Runtime engine and NOT merely distributing an Access file which has been converted to the .mde format?

doubt it ... and you only need that library for talking to Access 2.0 databases and surely you would like the performance benefit of upgrading any 2.0 database so you don't have to thunk between 16 and 62 bit layers. You can probably just use the standard dao 3.6 library just fine.

now I'm starting to remember ... that library was deployed with Access 95 (which was the first 32 bit version of Access). That was the first thing I did when converting from 97 to 2000, remove all the unnecessary dao2535.tlb references they forgot to when they went from 2.0 to 95 (which means every app had it) which was before I got here :-)

so then you have no need for that file and if you do have it referenced in your app, you can safely remove it.
