The user doesn't need the MS Access in his machine !!
When you deploy the application in the user's machine the
Setup must install the neccesary libraries (runtime
libraries) in order to manage the MDB file.
I recommend you to use PWD (Setup wizard that ships with
VB) and automaticaly will determine all the libraries you
will need to deploy (ado, dao ,etc) and you add your file
MDB to the setup (it's really easy to add the file).
