I have a vb.net app that uses a mdb.
My question is will the app work correctly with the access mdb if the client computer haven't access instaled?

Is there some dll/jet that I can Import or something?

I have made a quick test with a fresh xp in virtual pc, and it gives a error (I instaled .net framework in it).

Thanks

Yes. Access is just a front end, much like your app.

It should be done for you if you did your data access correctly. See the DW2 link in my signature, section on creating a simple data app.
