Run-time is "read only" on a PC

I've mananged to get Access Run-time working on a Win 98 PC. I was stoked
at that achievement, however I'm now stuck in that the files are opening
Read only. That is, I can view all the records via the two forms I need but
not change anything. Why? The command line for the user to access the file
is simply as follows (from advice via msdn.microsoft. com)

"C:\MS Runtime\Office1 0\MSACCESS.EXE" "Q:\QA Records Database\Vaccin e
Reminders\Vacci ne Reminders 2004.mdb"

As you can see, there are no switches of any kind, so why the inability to
edd or edit data? Anyone with suggestions for rectification?

Is Q: by any chance a CD ROM? Or was the file copied to the hard drive from a
CD ROM? That will usually leave the Read-Only flag set. Just right-click the
file and turn it off.

Rick,

Q:\ is a shared folder on the network. The user in question has change
access to the drive and in particular this folder.

All users of an Access file share need Full permissions on the folder where the
MDB file resides so that Access can properly manage the LDB file that is
created, modified, and deleted as the file is used.

This includes the ability to create new files and delete files.

Hi, I am trying to clean out all the VB specific code in a project before porting to C#. Having removed all the import references I still see the VB runtime is loaded at startup. How can I pin down what is actually causing the VB runtime still to load? Thanks for any help.

I have an Access application that is being used by 150+ clients. I develop in 97, convert to 2000 and distribute as a 97 or 2000 mde, or 97 runtime. This limits me to 97 functions. My clients may use any one of Access 97, 2000, 2002, 2003 or 97 runtime. So that I'm not lingering too far behind, I'm thinking of developing in 2003, using 2000 file format and distributing a 2000 mde for users of Access 2000+. (I understand I'll need to use...

My A97 runtime installations are sometimes paused during the install process prompting user with messages saying the files are in use. Generally, I tell them to click IGNORE. Although I haven't had any noticeable related impact in past installations, I cannot help but wonder what is going on and if my installations are jeopardized because of something important I'm overlooking.

A client of mine likes some of the new bells and whistles in Access 2007, and is thinking about converting our A03 format MDB to an A07 format file. However, while some of the users have A07, many do not, and it's not clear when they would get it. His thought was to use the upcoming Access 2007 runtime to allow the users who are still running Office 2003 to be able to run the database. While I use multiple versions of Access on my...
