Is there a way to disable the F-11 key to prevent runtime installations from opening the database window?

MLH
If I give someone a runtime app,
they can open the database
window by pressing the F-11
key. How to prevent???

This is another perfect example of what I and others have been trying to
tell you. Type Disable F11 into the Help assistand and you are give the
one and only help topic that answers how to do this. Took me exactly 2
seconds to find it, much less time than it took for you to type this.
Have you ever tried using the help file? It really does have help in it.
Try it out. Please!

Does anybody else care to comment.
Access 97 says nothing about F-11.
Obviously Bri is not using my installation
of A97 or my HELP.

When I followed Bri's instructions (type "Disable F11" ...) on my
installation of a97, I got two entries returned. Both seem relevant.

I no longer have A97 installed. Do you have an AllowSpecialKey s property?

I see the following in another thread I started
and lost a couple of days earlier. Free Agent
sometimes is not everything I wish it were. If
I lose a thread - I have no clue how to get it
back again. So I googled and found paii, Ron
and Wayne Gillespie so graciously responded to my
Q...

To answer first, Wayne Gillespie - you were right.
The target machine DID have A97 installed on it.
I didn't realize all one had to do if one wished to
see the database window is to install A97 on the
machine running the runtime app. If that's all one
has to do, there's not much point in disabling it unless
you know for certain that target machines are not
running A97. Hmmm??? I could never say that with
certainty.

Now, for Ron Paii - can I implement what you suggested
programatically from code? What if I want the F-11 utility
or to open a debug window or pause execution - and I
choose to allow it if I'm the logged in user? I may even
base it on group membership. Can that be done?

I did not know pressing F-11 key would open database
window in a runtime installation. I found it out by accident
today. How might I prevent this undesirable event?

2 ways, I use both!
1) Create a macro called "AutoKeys"
Under the Macro Name column create one called "{F11}" and assign
some do
nothing action.
2) In the database startup uncheck "Use Access Special Keys", visible
if you
click the Advanced button.

Realize you will also need to disable the default menu and tool bars,
they
also provide the ability to unhide the database window.

Are you sure you were running the db in a full runtime environment and
not on a machine with A97 installed?
In a true runtime environment the database window is never accessible
by ANY means.

Good for you. Care to share the answer?
I typed Disable F-11, Disable F11, F11
Disable, f11 disable, disable f11 =>

nothing worked
sure would be nice if mine worked as good
as yours. But it doesn't. Seriously, though...
it doesn't really make that much difference.
It has been answered in another thread I
deleted by accident.

Happy Holidays from Google
Web Results 1 - 10 of about 67,600 for Disable F11 Access 97. (0.19
seconds)

*****

Go to Google Groups Home
Searched all groups Results 1 - 10 of 274 for Disable F11 Access 97
(0.15 seconds)

*****
Regardless I had no problem with your question as it was simple and
clear and without any clutter (eg. Does anyone know how to do a hard
disk write to byte 412 of an Access mdb to disable F-11?). I didn't
answer because I don't have Access 97and I couldn't remember if Access
97 works the way Access 2003 works with respect to this.

Yep. T'was hiding in the startup properties. Thx.

I am using AC97 SP2.

F1 for the Help assistant
Disable F11 - One topic returned
Disable F-11 - Many topics returned, had to look at them to see which
one was pertinent

If this doesn't work for you then I sugggest that you reinstall Access
(or run the install checker) as there is something wrong with your help
files. While you are there select all the options for all of the
advanced help (gets you VBA help).

Something wrong with your help files could explain a few things.
