Update! Looks like the release date for the packaging software I am waiting on is getting close. And not only that it will be FREE!
I was really concerned on how I was going to get a copy. It was about $800.
I found the following post on Microsoft’s Developers Site:
Access 2007 Runtime and Developer Extension will be Free
Posted Friday, February 02, 2007 10:01 AM by Erik Rucker
This morning we are announcing that the developer extensions and runtime will be available for FREE! In the past, Access developers had to purchase the Visual Studio Tools for Microsoft Office System in order to build and deploy runtime solutions. The product was costly at nearly $800 for the full version and $550 for the upgrade. This really is great news for Access developers.
We are still working on the finishing touches—I don’t have a definite release date but rest assured the team is working hard to finish the work.
Thanks for your patience. I will keep you posted.
Let me tell you the secret that has led me to my goal: my strength lies solely in my tenacity.
