Thanks

Microsoft makes mention of "Powered by Microsoft Office Access" in their
EULA. It is basically a trade-off. Free advertising for Microsoft, in
exchange for providing the runtime and developer extensions for free. I
dont' have a problem with it myself.

If the line is not encrypted and appears openly in the executable you could
probably modify it directly with a hex editor. I suppose you'd have to
create a string of exactly the same length, and, oh yeah, check for
unicode.
The chances of your permanently destroying the file would not be more than,
in my opinion, 99.44 %.

If you're talking about the runtime it would be a violation of the license
agreement to remove it. Some developers who use the runtime have always gone
out of their way to try to mask the fact that their app was created with Access.
Microsoft has now gone out of their way to make sure that it is known to all.

I have seen Access run-time applications presented as original, "from-
the-ground-up", programs.
If this new branding enables clients to recognize better what they are
getting, and the skill level of the organization or person who created
it, then I am one hundred per cent supportive.

I think it's lame.

Aren't they doing something similar with prior versions...like 2003? If
I have a desktop icon with the command similar to
msaccess.exe "C:\Test\App.Md b" /wrkgrp c:\Test\App.mdw
it opens a full screen Access window, complete with menu items, and then
it presents the login window. Splash screens are gone. Not like A97
where one was presented with the splash screen and the modal login form
prior to opening the app.

With A2003, it simply looks ugly presenting Access prior to logging in.
I guess MS wanted folks to know that the app was written in Access. I
woulnd't mind if it weren't so ugly.

In 2007, there is no ugliness in the way of splash screens, only the
"Powered by MS Office Access 2007" in the lower right, which I don't think
looks bad at all. Actually looks good, IMO. Then there is the top left
office button, which you can add your own "File, Open" and "File, Register"
type commands, so it's quite nice. This adds a modern, slick look, IMO.

I'm really only having 2 problems with the 2007 runtime:

1) Right-clicks on subforms do not show your custom shortcut menus. Mainly
for the copy/paste, and user's seem to be stubborn about using <Ctrl>V to
paste.

2) This is the biggie, show-stopper variety: The "OutputTo" command for
sure, and maybe even the "SendObject " command, are broken in the runtime
only. This means, for those who have 2007 programs that have options to
e-mail reports, the e-mailing basically won't work. This is the biggest
issue I have with the 2007 runtime, "Powered by..." is not a concern, but a
plus: looks nice, and adds credibility (unless, of course, your customers
can't stand microsoft products)

Hello there, Are there any out-of-the box handhelds that run Linux/Apache/MYSQL and PHP? Does Redhat, Suse, or Gentoo support any handhelds? I know the Zaurus comes close, but I've heard people have problems running LAMP applications on it. It would be cool to be able to run any LAMP application on sourceforge on a handheld computer.

Hi, I'm a bit confused ... when would I rather write an database application using MS Access and Visual Basic and when (and why) would I rather write it using Visual Studio .Net? Is it as easy in Visual Studio to create reports and labels as it's in Access?` The advantage of VS.net is that not every user needs Access, right? And that would eliminate the Access version problem as well I guess.

Hi, We have a C#.NET win-forms application that talks to a device plugged into the USB port. Sometimes when severe communications interruptions occur, such as from a burst of ESD electricity, we need to toggle the power on that device in order to bring it back to life. We can do this by unplugging the usb cable from the PC, obviously, but our program needs to recover without manual intervention.
