Installation question

Hi EE

Some time ago I posed a question concerning the Package wizard that comes with 2003. I had problems when it came to selecting language. Advised by EE experts  not to use anyway because it wasn't reliable and to use a third party installer. I have and use Inno setup compiler. My question is can I install standalone Access with PC's that haven't got Office installed using this installer

Any help appreciated

See if this Inno script I have post on my site helps:

With the latest versions of Access i.e. Access 2007 and 2010, you can use Access runtime version for free. You can include the runtime when you package the application using the Access Developer Extension.

Here's the link of the Developer Extension
http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=24569

And for the runtime version, see the link below:

Sincerely,
Ed

I agree wth the above response.   Even if your database is still in Access 2003, you can use the current runtime versions for your application.

There have been issues reported when trying to run an older .mdb file with the 2007/2010 runtimes, so if you go this route then be sure to thoroughly test your app in that environment.

You don't really need the developer extensions when using a 3rd party installer. Just include the .msi file (the one that installs the Access runtime) in your deployment, and "call" it from that installation.

I think you have mentioned issues with using 2003/2007 and 20010 runtime before. So basically I just need to run msi  located in office 2003 folder

Don't understand why it keeps asking why I have accepted my name as part of the solution. I haven't
