The full story on distribuing MSDE with your application can be found at
http://www.microsoft.com/sql/msde/howtobuy/msdeuse.mspx, but the short
answer is "yes" if you used one of these tools to create it:
. ASP.NET Web Matrix
. MSDNŽ Universal, Enterprise, and Professional subscriptions
. Microsoft Office XP Developer Edition
. SQL Server 2000 Developer, Standard, and Enterprise Editions
. Microsoft Visual StudioŽ .NET Architect, Developer, and Professional
. Microsoft Visual FoxProŽ 7.0 or 8.0
See that site for how to register for the free redistribution rights and
some other help ful info.

Thanks. I should have done more searching myself but you saved me the time
and pointed me to the exact page I needed. Microsoft is so vast that it's
hard to find stuff sometimes.
