Access 2007 Runtime

P: n/a
I was one of the few who was able to download the Access 2007 runtime
when it was available for a short time. I installed it but cannot
figure out how it runs an Access 2007 database. There is no obvious exe
that runs. When the actual runtime is released I'd like to be able test
my app under the runtime - not just the developement Access 2007 with
the runtime switch. I just can't figure out how to run the app with
just the runtime. Thanks. David

The runtime switch is exactly what you will see under the "real" runtime.
The runtime is a FULL installation of Access. It just has registry entries
to prohibit design capabilities. In fact you cannot even really install the
runtime on the same PC that already has Access 2007 on it because the
installer will see that Access 2007 is present and won't install another
copy.

So...the "EXE that runs" is MSAccess.exe just as it is when you run the file
now.

I guess there's a problem with the runtime (which is why they pulled it)
because I'm getting errors under the runtime that I don't see when I run
Access in runtime mode.
Thanks for the info. David

I'm sure they must have had some reason for pulling the runtime -- that's
not something they'd likely do because "it seemed like a good idea at the
time". Perhaps you will have better luck when they make a corrected, newer,
or difference version available.

What kind of errors?
