Access 2007 Runtime - Trusted Locations

P: 1
I have developed an inventory application with Access 2007 that I need to set up on 10 other PC's in our office (running XP).

I loaded Access Runtime 2007 on the PC's but get the annoying trusted location warning...

Used regedit to add all the registry keys for the location of the database which it resides in a shared folder on the file server (office uses workgroups to share files and printer)..

It may just be a syntax problem with the value I enter into the path key...

File resides on share name - "xpsserver"
In folder - "Tiger Perf - Current"
File name - "price lists"
Drive is mapped to this location on the client side (Y drive)..

tried -"Y:\Tiger Perf - Current\" (without the quotes)
tried -"Y:\Tiger Perf - Current" (without the quotes)
tried -"Y:\\xpsserver\Tiger Perf - Current\" (without the quotes)
tried -"Y:\\xpsserver\Tiger Perf - Current" (without the quotes)
tried -"Y:\\xpsserver\Tiger Perf - Current\price lists.mdb" (without the quotes)
tried -"Y:\\xpsserver\Tiger Perf - Current\price lists" (without the quotes)

Also tried eliminating the drive info (Y)....

None worked - still get the warning...

Suggestions??

thank you in advance..

Not sure, but as the drive can differ, you'll have to use the servername.
Also keep in mind that the name behind the Y: is the "root" folder and doesn't "show". So I would expect:
\\xpsserver\
would be the way to go, but an additional backslash before the servername could be necessary.
