Custom Menus being overwritten

I distribute an application with custom menus. It is distributed as an A
2000 mde. On a small number of computers my custom menus disappear and are
replaced by other menus. My users (remote to me) all claim that their Access
options are the same as they are on other computers on which the app works
OK. In one case moving from Win2K to XP solved the problem.

Has anyone else seen this and is there a way to fix the problem?

While a surprising number of people do not create custom menus...I am one
who is a big fan of them,a nd have used them a lot since access97.

I not come across, or seen your problem. I assume that as a mde..then allow
moving, and allow customizing menus is turned off..right? (if not...then it
could be users that are customizing menus........bu t I did not think users
can do that in the runtime!...perh aps some users have full ms-access here?).

Hi, I am working with a DB with custom menus. I am trying to get the "send to -> mail recipient (as attachment)" to show up on the custom menu.

Furthermore, I also want to add "send to..." to the short-cut menu (i.e. when a user right clicks on a report), but I'm not sure...

I have a custom Access menu with sub-menus and sub-sub-menus. (220 items). Right now I have created 220 Functions and attached each individual Function to the specific OnAction property. The Functions return Text which is the same as the Caption of the sub-sub-menu items. I would like to reference the Custom Popup Caption of these sub-sub-menus and pass it through one Function for input in a form. *** Sent via Developersdex...

I distribute an A 2000 app as a mde. On a few customers, my custom menus are overwritten. The top menu is generally there but the choices on the menus are gone or replaced by something else. I can't figure this one out. Any ideas on what may be causing this? It happens on machines with A 2000 and A 2003, Win Home and Win XP. I've yet to see a pattern but it happens on about 3 or 4% of the users machines.

I have an Access app that has been distributed with run-time installation to many different customers over many years. It is developed in Access 2000. The custom menu bar has had no problems in the past. However on one new computer it was installed on last week the custom 'Tools' menu (which normally contains items such as 'Backup Data' and 'Preferences..' etc) has been replaced by a single menu item under Tools that says 'Other..'....

Hi all I have created a strong DataSet using Visual Studio. I have been in to the DataSet's vb file to have a look at the code and see if I can add things to it. What I'm after is to create a new method on every DataTable in the DataSet, this method will be called SelectToTable, as I have the need to select rows in a current table into another table, and the Select method only returns an array of data rows. However, any changes that I...

Hello all, For right-click (shortcut) menus in access 2007, I've been using a round-about method of opening access 97 on an old computer, modifying my own custom shortcut menus, then importing the menus only into my access 2007 project. This is proving cumbersome (especially since my old pc with access 97 likes to blue screen when running acc 97), and I was wondering if there's an easier way?

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
