May be I'm missing something, but why is it *so unacceptable* to include
the MS distributable as part of your application install?

I have used countless "embedded" products which have required several
redistributables to be also installed -- look at any Java app/applet, or
the worse of all the MSDE (MS Data Engine) which had a very
**lightweight** install of only 500MB in size (which included IE 7.0)

Having to build your own engine EXE/DLL seems way too much work!

Surely your time is better spent working on your own application issues
then building your own engine so you can not ship a 2.8MB
