New Version of Access 2007 Developer Extensions

The Jan09 version of the Access 2007 Access Developer Extensions package is available for download.

The Access 2007 Developer Extensions provide packaging and deployment tools and licensing and distribution agreements for deploying Access 2007 applications. The Access Developer Extensions include the following components:
  • Package Solution Wizard A wizard that creates a Windows Installer Package (MSI) to install your database and any supporting files and optionally includes the Access 2007 Runtime, or prompts the user to download the Access 2007 Runtime.
  • Save As Template Enables you to create database templates (ACCDTs) that can be featured in the Access 2007 Getting Started screen.
  • Source Code Control Integration with Microsoft Visual SourceSafe or other source code control systems to allow check-in/check-out of queries, forms, reports, macros, modules, and data. You can also see the differences that have been made to your checked out objects.
The Access 2007 Developer Extensions do not include the Property Scanner and the Custom Startup Wizard that were included in previous versions.

The Access 2007 Runtime is also available as a download.
