    I have a proplem free application and want to create a version that does not
    require user to have Office. I have the Microsoft Developer Extensions
    package for this purpose and have used it successfully in the past. The
    current problem occures when using the Custom Start up part. I get as far as
    setting all the startup properties, click finish and then the behavior gets
    weird. Where it usually creates the .MDE version and asks me if I want to
    open it or not and then tells me to close Access. Where I then run the
    package wizard in preperation to creating the final CD with auto run to
    install the app. What happens is it tells me it is creating thr .MDE version
    and just hangs there. I have checked all the compatability issues where asked
    and everything is fine, so I go on with the program and like I said, it just
    hangs. Anyone else have this problem and any possible solutions to it? Much
    Thanks,
    Bart

    To create a shortcut to start your application with the /runtime option

    Create a shortcut to start Microsoft Access.
    Right-click the shortcut, click Properties, and then click the Shortcut tab.
    In the Target box, following the path to MSAccess.exe, type the path to the
    database you want to open, and then type /runtime. If the path contains
    spaces, enclose it in quotation marks.
    For example, the following command line starts Microsoft Access and then
    opens the Developer Applications sample application in run-time mode.

    "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\MSAccess.exe" "C:\Program
    Files\Microsoft Office\Office\Samples\Solutions.mdb" /runtime
    Note If you are working on a network that supports universal naming
    convention (UNC) paths (\\ServerName\SharedFolder), you can specify the
    location of the database without specifying a mapped drive letter. For
    example, you can copy your database to a shared network folder and define the
    shortcut's command line to open the database from that location by using the
    UNC path.
