I'm happy to announce the runtime is finally done and for the first time ever--available as a free download!
Once again, sorry for the delay and the problems it caused for some businesses. It is great to feel like I can blog again without a deluge of "where is the runtime" questions. I have already seen an 8 page post mortem talking about what went wrong and how we can learn from this experience.
Enjoy developing and deploying Access applications.
Edit June 26th. Ug--The runtime was pulled this afternoon. More information should be coming on the Access Blog.
