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.
