How to make ACCESS based database application run without having ACCESS installed?


  • I've made (ACCESS 2007 based database) app on VB.NET 3.5 into a setup file.
    When I install it and RUN it on a PC that has no ACCESS 2007 on it, it says: Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12 missing.
    Clearly the solution is to install ACCESS 2007.

    Q1: How can I make it RUN on a PC that has no ACCESS 2007 installed on?

    Q2: Can I include .NET Framework 3.5 in the setup package so the user doesn't have to download it and install it separately?

    Thank You!
