Running Access 97 Runtime from Access 2002 MSAccess.

Post by Cyndy Shee » Wed, 21 Jul 2004 04:48:07


I have figured out how to run the Access 97 Runtime from Access 2002 as a
runtime. It appears to work fine, but each time it is opened, there is a
message that the user must click "OK" on. It is as follows:

"You can't make changes to the database objects in the database "name.mdb."
This database was created in an earlier version of the Label Print Work
Station. To convert this database to the current verison of the database
name, close the database, point to Database Utilities on the tools menu, and
then click convert Database."

It is not stopping any of the application processes, but it is an added
inconvenience for the users to have to click the "OK" each time.

Is there a switch you can run to not have the message pop up

Thanks in advance for any help anyone can give.

I believe the advice in http://www.yqcomputer.com/
Access 2002 as well (except that the key that needs to be set will be under
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\10.0\Access\Settings\, not
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\9.0\Access\Settings\

Thanks Doug, but that only takes care of the first screen. There is another
window that pops up that only allows the selection of OK. It is more of an
informational window.

I did find the key under the 10.0 location and set it to 1. Then tested the
application in a runtime environment of XP with the command line being:

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10\MSACCESS.EXE" /Runtime
"C:\folder\database.mdb"

I appreciate your answer and if you have any other suggestions I would
welcome them.
