Yes, I forgot about that. This might work, at least with newer versions
of Access.

There might be a caveat, though: You can remotely use MS Access to
access an MDB file on a file server. You can even do it multiple times,
having x instances of MS Access access just one file on a remote server.
Can a remote application register with the VSS service on a completely
different machine?
