I don't know very much about them, but I want to suggest a direction to research. Look into Embedded database systems/engines. I am not sure how large of a database you need, however, if this is to be installed on a target machine that does not already have a database server installed, I am going to guess it is not going to be massive and it won't need a ton of complex features. From what I understand (which I admit, isn't much right now), embedded database systems are designed to work very closely with applications without necessarily forcing the user to install and setup a third party database. For example, I believe the Thunderbird email client uses SQLite to manage its data. Wikipedia has a list of many of them.... although I am sure there are others. Different systems seem to have different advantages and disadvantages, but it seems that most embedded DB systems are very small, but not quite as fast as larger, traditional DB systems.Some (but not all) have shortcomings in multi user support and/or security. However, if the user doesn't need to support many users simultaneously and handle millions of records at a time, then why force the user to install a DBMS that is several hundred megabytes and includes unused DB management sofware? This is just an idea to look into... I am not sure if this will help you at all and, as I said, I don't know very much about them yet... although in a few weeks, I may be using one for a project I want to make.

There used to be something called MSDE (a royalty free 5 user SQL Server engine). Edit: Presently it is called Express edition, which is royalty free. ,

This should work: Expression: AgeInYears: DateDiff("y",Date(),[DateOfBirth]) Criteria: <18
