SQLite is portable. Uses local databases and all you need for it to work is to ship your program, your database, and the SQLite "engine" - the SQLite DLL. Can be used on Windows, Mac, Linux, and other OS's

I will do the work for you, pay me?

Precompiled Binaries For .NET is the one I would download if I was using .NET

Next I searched google with "sqlite vb.net" and got tons of pages explaining how to setting it up and using it. Even some sample code!
