I saw this in my Microsoft downloads email yesterday:
Access 2007 Developer Extensions make it easy to deploy and manage solutions built using Access.
Packing and sharing Access solutions has always been a pain in the rear. My recollection (it’s been a while) was that there was no freely available runtime. So every end user had to have a full license to Access, even if they weren’t doing any development.
So now the runtime will be free. It’s not quite available yet but will be out soon.
Here’s more from the Office Developer Center:
Introducing the Access 2007 Developer Extensions and Runtime
