    Make a built-in database with your program, itīs not that hard, just study some I/O devices for windows http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de..._functions.asp, or just connect to the DB remotely.

    If the DB is on a network that your software can access, then you can use a DSN (Data Source Name, File or System are the network versions IIRC).

    A DSN can be added by your app at run time.

    You can also use a database like mySQL, as the server is free, and you're free to develop clients for it, as long as you dynamically link to the library (you can't statically link it under the license agreement I believe, unless your project is GPL).
