Hello, first time posting here, but site has been plenty helpful to me so far, thankyou.

Am currently working on C# oleDb connections with access .mdb files for a university project, i have the start of a program that works fine in university, but when i run it at home with the same vis studio '08 it doesn't seem to open the database, throws no errors, just my drop down menu which lists the tables in the db is blank. Do i actually need access installed? Or are there some other features i am missing which may cover this issue. I literally have just visual studio installed, nothing from office. Add/remove says i have .NET compact 2.0, compact 3.5, full 1.1 and 4 client profile if that helps.
Many thanks

scratch that, just needed to compile for x86 and it worked, any reason why this should matter?
