Microsoft Releases Access 2010 Distribution Tools for Developers

 
Microsoft has released two Access 2010 tools for Office Developers:
 
    • Microsoft Access Database Engine 2010 is a set of components that can be used by non-Microsoft Office applications to read data from and write data to Office 2010 system files such as Microsoft Access 2010 (mdb and accdb) files and Microsoft Excel 2010 (xls, xlsx, and xlsb) files.  Connectivity to text files is also supported.
      ODBC and OLEDB drivers are installed for application developers to use in developing their applications with connectivity to Office file formats.
 
    • Microsoft Access 2010 Runtime – Microsoft Access 2010 provides a rich platform for developing database management solutions with easy-to-use customization tools.  If no end-user customization is required (including report modifications), you can choose to distribute those Access 2010 solutions so that they run without requiring a full installation of Access 2010 . To do so, you must package and distribute your application with the Access 2010 Runtime.
