I'm developing an Access 2010 application for a client that has 10 Pc's running XP. I was told I could purchase an Access Development kit that allows me to install just the Access exectable on each of the workstations and install Office 2010 pro on the Pc that will act as the server and host the DB.

Can somene provide information on the exact name of the kit I need to purchase and a little info on how to implement it?

Start with Access 2007 the developer extensions  and Access runtime are freely available for download from Microsoft.

In 2010, The developer extensions are deployed with Access 2010.  The Access runtime is also a free download.


Hopefully you have already split your database so it can be properly shared.

Have you tested it yet in Runtime mode?

There is no 'server' process.  Nothing needs to be installed on the server to run Access.
