    Can anyone advise on the licenced distribution of jet databases?

    I have yet to write a Database in VB, but am starting my first one tommow. I thought I had read someware that VB Pro does not allow distribution of databases using the jet engine.

    I have phoned Microsoft, but they didn't seem that clued up?

    I've made several database programs and I have used the Microsoft JetBase database engine many times. It's ACCESS that has copyrights, not the engine.

    Microsoft does however give the advice to programmers to edit the extemtion of the file. Instead of using .MBD, you make one yourself that's not registered in the computer.
    This makes it easy to protect your database form people that want to change it, or so Microsoft claimes.

    Catch you later,
