Yes, that's part of Windows, so it's almost safe to assume that it's
there, and you can get to it through com.  However, I don't want to
worry one bit about what version is there or if MS will put in changes
in subsequent releases that will break my application.  And I'd rather
embed the database so that I don't have to worry about the user changing
it with an MS desktop app to violate my rules of relational integrity
and crash my app.
