Access 2007 engine

What is the full path name to the Access 2007 engine? I have been given an
older version of an Access database (front-end and back end files), and an
installation shortcut that provides the full path to "MSACCESS.EXE".

The path name that the installation routine now provides is "C:\Program
Files\Microsoft Office\Office\MSACCESS.EXE" . Of course, this is not correct
on my Vista machine, using Access 2007.

BTW, I cannot just launch the front-end database. Trying to do so gives me
a meesage that I do not have the necessary permissions to do so, something
the installation routine will give me.

Mine is:

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE12\MSACCESS.EXE"

Perfect, found msaccess.exe in the path your provided, changed the path name
in the routine, launched the routine, and I am up and running.
