    Unanswered: Packaging MS Access Table with VB application.


    I am a beginner in VB development. I have a VB- MS access application for which i want to create a package using Package and Deployment wizard. The applciation connects to the database via DSN. Client machine may/maynot have MS-Access installed.

    How do i go about this?
    Which driver/dll/exe i need to include in the package?
    Do i need to create DSN on client machines mannually?

    Thanks in Advance.

    I can't answer the Access dll/exe question.

    But you could create the "DSN=..." using API calls to update the registry.

    Either by deploying a small executable to "configure" the PC; having your application create the "DSN=..." the first time it is executed; or change your application to use the new "connectionless protocol".

    Good Luck,
