General: Convert Access databases to Executables

Author(s)
Dev Ashish

(Q) How can I convert my Access database into an Exe (executable) file?

(A) Sorry. Just can't be done. At best, you can use -

   Office XP for Developers
   Office Developer Edition (ODE 97) for Access 97
   Access Developer's Kit (ADT) for Access 95
   Access Developer's Kit (ADT) for Access 2.0

   to create install diskettes which allows the users to install your database on their system even if they don't have Access. But in all situations, ie. using VB as a front end to the database, trying with C++ etc., Access databases must retain their mdb file structure.
