Access Runtime

Guest

I have an application that I develop on Windows XP using Access 2002 SP3. It
appears that when I package the application and install it with the Access
runtimeon a different operating system the application gets some odd problems.

When I then go to the target machine and go out to Microsoft and get office
updates for the Access Runtime, the problem goes away. Why is this? I am
installing the runtime that is the latest and greatest - is it that the
runtime on my machine is just that much different than it would be for the
different windows operating system on the target machine?

Thank you so much for you help.

Runtimes that you install do not include any patches or upgrades. You must
install patches and upgrades on each PC after you install the runtime on the
PC.

The ODE for Access 97 did use your updated msaccess.exe and .dlls so
it would distribute the latest updates. I don't think Office 2000 did
but I can't recall for sure.

I know for certain that ACCESS 2002 and 2003 do not install patches with the
runtimes.

Thank you for the information - this is a drag. Is there anyway that I can
include the patches with the runtime so that each target machine does not
have to go out to get them.

No, although you can download the patches as the actual files (put them on a
CD or DVD) and then run them locally on the PCs (but again each must done
invidually).
