Run-Time Problems

    I have an Access application for schools that I have been distributing with a
    run-time version of Access for some time now. I bought a new computer, and
    suddenly the schools are no longer able to install the application. They
    get an error message that tells them some of their files are out of data.

    I opened an email case with Microsoft, and they tell me that you can't
    distribute run-time applications to earlier versions of Windows, because of a
    file called OLEAUT32 which keeps getting updated with a new version. The
    only solution is keep creating the run-time version with my old computer, or
    have all my users install the latest version of Internet Explorer on their
    computers.

    This seems crazy. I can't update my computer and move to a later version of
    windows without creating problems for my users. Is there a way around this?
    What do other developers do?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    you don't say which version of Access, or which
    installation packager you are using.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
