Understanding the Visual Studio Tools for the Microsoft Office System

You can obtain additional tools and a license to freely distribute runtime versions of your applications by purchasing Microsoft Visual Studio Tools for the Microsoft Office System. This package includes the following:

  • Microsoft Office Access 2003 Developer Extensions. This package includes the following tools for Access:

    • A royalty-free license to distribute the runtime modules for Microsoft Access. This allows you to provide your application to users who do not have Access.

    • A package and deploy wizard that helps you create installation files that include your database application, the runtime modules necessary to run your application, and any supporting files (such as ActiveX controls or icons). The wizard creates a standard Microsoft Windows Installer setup file (.msi).

    • A custom startup wizard that helps you create the Startup properties for your desktop database or project file.

    • A property scanner utility that lets you search all collections, objects, and properties in your desktop database or project file for a particular value.

    • A source code database to help you discover how the wizards included with this package work.

    • White papers on Access desktop database security, conditional formatting, normalization, and managing SQL Server security.

  • Microsoft Visual Basic .NET Standard Edition. This package provides you with additional tools to allow you to use Microsoft Visual Basic .NET to write code for Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel applications.

  • Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Developer Edition. This includes a full desktop edition of SQL Server 2000 (not just MSDE) with all the tools you need to fully manage SQL Server on your desktop machine.
