Access97 runtime


M

Mark Andrews

I have a client that wants to get a copy of the Access97 runtime. I tried
searching and can't seem to find it anywhere on the web (free or paid).
I'm not sure if Access97 put the runtime in some sort of Office Developer
product or not?

I have trouble remembering what happened last week, so remembering details
about 13 years ago is causing me some troubles.

Perhaps a product that installs and uses the Access97 runtime might work if
he can't get a hold of the runtime by itself.

They do NOT want to install any other version of the runtime, due to
configuration dialogs between versions etc....

Thanks in advance for any help,
Mark

Mark,

It was a separate package and if I remember correctly not that cheap. I am
not sure you can get a copy unless you got one when it came out. (I'm
pretty sure I got it on an old machine around somewhere but I still using.)
I assume you tried places like Amazon.com? Do you have an MSDN license?
Might be available there.

I tried amazon. I just tried eBay. I have an old copy of Access97 (I had
to install it to make a tweak on his database). I'm trying to get on his
good side so I can do the big conversion of his entire Access97 system to
Access 2007 (it sounds like it's pretty big).

However he asked me to search out a way to get the Access97 runtime said he
couldn't find it anywhere so I tried a little and had the same luck.

I think I'll just tell him to buy some copies of Access97 (full version) if
he insists on being legal. They do have those on Amazon and eBay for $30 to
$80.

Thanks for your help,
Mark

Yes, it was called the Office 97 Developers Edition.

I very likely have it here somewhere. Fully legal CD and case.
Make me an offer. <smile> tony at granite dot ab dot ca. I might
have trouble digging out the original receipt or even a copy thereof.

It's very likely in my safe deposit box which is where I keep the
retail copies of all software I purchase so I'd have to go digging
through that.

I just sent him an email telling him to just buy a few copies of the
full version and then I saw your post.

He runs a food bank in PA. Feel like making a generous donation to help the
hungry?
Well actually help the people organize the effort to help feed the hungry.

If so throw it in an envelope and mail it to:

If not no worries, I'm sure he will survive.

Thanks,
Mark

The A97 runtime may only be distributed by an licensed user
of the Office Developer product, and may only be distributed
with an Access Application.

Perhaps your users would be interested in evaluating a product
like MAC NET Financial Accounting?
http://www.mac-net.com/144296.page

The user will need to download the appropriate support files
from that web site, and ought to check everything with an
AV program.
