I want to deploy VB.Net application with database as msaccess

How to divert the connection path to Virtualstore directory when i am updating database

"Virtualstore"? That's where Windows deposits files which user with insufficeient privileges changed. When a file gets there, it means that the programmer designed his program not correctly!
The ProgramData directory is the correct location.

Move your database to "application.startuppath" and replace connection strings.

You can always access it on client machine.
