Microsoft Office Access database engine 2007 setup

Microsoft Office Access database engine 2007 setup can be found at Microsoft Downloads. Access 2007 introduced a new database format, and using this setup you don’t need to install Access 2007 in order to connect to Access 2007 database from .NET or Delphi, whatever.

I need to include this database engine setup file in my application's installer, but since both of them are .msi files the database engine setup fails with error 1500: "Another installation is in progress. You must complete that installation before continuing this one.

Hi,
not sure i understand completely, but if you have a backend in Access 2007 format - then you already use Access 2007 database engine, there is no other way to access it

Hi Alex,

My Client doesnot want to buy microsoft aceess 2007 for back end operations and wants to know if he can run the application just by installing the data base engine 2007. I mean he is wondering if he can only work with database engine and can avoid buying the Microsoft Access 2007

Hi,
if your front end in vb.net - then you can install Microsoft Office Access database engine 2007 and use it from VB.NET, no need to buy Access. You can also build your FE on Access and then install free access runtime on the client
