    Should be. There is nothing unique about using Oracle and Access when
    it comes to the full version and the runtime that I can think off.
    You can test this yourself by setting the /runtime switch.

    See Microsoft Access (Office) Developer Edition FAQ for more
    information on this switch.

    You may also want to use a DSN less connection so as to remove one
    variable from your install.

    I much prefer DSN-Less connections as it is one less thing for someone
    to have to configure and one less thing for the users to screw up.
