I have reciently noticed that when you load adobe 7.0 the pdfmaker modfies the MS products to include a new "toolbar" button on the startup menus called Adobe PDF. This affects most microsoft products including MS Access. The problem I have noticed is the intialization of this application modification is after the MS Access security has intialized. If you have MS Access security set for read only personal, or if mulitple people are accessing one shell at a time, there is an error message stating you can not open the said database in exclusive rights to apply this application modification. The message will appear 31 times after clicking ok 31 times. The only symtom fix I can come up with is one, only one person can open the shell at one time and two the groups or users in the MS Access security must be given exclusive and admin rights for the database. You can load adobe 7.0 without this option if you don't load the program from the Typical, but what if you want it for the rest of microsoft such as word and excel but not for access. Anyone have any suggestions.
