Help!

P: n/a
I have written an small application in Access 2003 and distributed it
with a runtime.

However, my users keep getting the following security warning message:

"This file may not be safe if it contains code that intended to harm
your computer. Do you want to open..."

I tried installing Microsoft Jet 4 on their computer but it didn't
help.

Can anyone help me with this?

Alternatively, is there a way to set the Macro Security level to low at
my users computer? (note they they're running the application with
access runtime and do not have Ms Access installed in their computer)

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Do they have a full version of Access on their machines? If they run the
database using that then the security warning would kick. There can be
subtle issues when installing a runtime alongside an existing version of
Access. Make sure they have a shortcut that specifies the runtime and uses
the /runtime switch.

Oops, just saw your note about Access not being present, still I would
double-check.
