Deploy tool designed in Ms.Access 2003


Repath Athyala

Hi all,

I have developed a tool for a team in Ms.Access 2003.

According to the microsoft I have downloaded the RUNTIME Environment.

This is added to the network login Profile of all the users over here., and
is installed automatically on the users computers.
The RunTime Environment can identify the tool.
When double clicked on the tool deployed on the share drive to which all the
users have access, it works fine for the first time.

When the user closed the application and logs on next time either same day
or next day, it does not open (Execute) after double clicking on the tool
icon. (no activity is seen)

Can any one help me to deploy the tool successfully without installing
Ms.Access software over the client computer.

With regards
Repath Athyala

Put the a copy of the front end of the 'tool' on each users's desktop
Put the backend on the server.
Link each front end to the backend on the server.
This is the recommended way to install a multi-user access database.
