Auto FE Updater

Discussion in 'Access VBA Modules' started by Konchetta via, Jun 1, 2010.

  1. I have been successful so far at completing the steps and understanding how
    the Updater is to work on the workstations but in running a test to ensure
    what I am changing is actually being updated to the workstations, I run into
    a problem. When I first copied the database to the workstations, they all
    were missing the following reference..outlctlx.dll but i added the reference
    to each workstation when I opened the database and each time I opened it was
    fine and didn't ask for the reference. But now when I make a change to the FE
    and the user clicks the icon to the updater, the following message appears
    and we have to keep clicking until it clears the screen: "Your Microsoft
    Access database or project contains a missing or broken reference to the file
    outlctlx.dll version 1.0". Will the user have to add this reference everytime
    there is an update? Also, does the user click the updater everytime they want
    to enter the database? I now have two icons on the desktop, the shortcut to
    the updater and the shortcut to the database. Do I need to delete something?

    Thanks for your assistance!!

  2. Note: I actually had the outlctlx.dll located in the folder with the BE so
    that I could locate and copy it to the workstations when I realized they all
    needed this reference. It wasn't located on their workstations in the Office
    folder becuase they all had Office 12. Is there an Office 12 verison of this
    reference. I have no knowledge of this.
