Access2010 - Package Solution Wizard - File to Package - ERROR: This file is in use

Access2010 - Package Solution Wizard - File to Package - ERROR: This file is in use
Views: 25
When I open a access database (2007 format) in designer mode and want to create a MSI package I choose [FILE] - [Save & Publish] - [Package Solution] and the wizard opens.

When I complete this wizard, I get a error: "a unexpected error has occurred"

The only strange thing I see is in the 2nd screen, Installation Options. File to Package.

Here I had typed the complete path and filename of my current database.

When I choose BROWSE to select my (current) database I get a error: This file is in use. Enter a new name or close the file that is open in another program.

There are no other programs that are using this file.

Learn how to add an add-in to a Microsoft Office Access 2007 deployment package created by using the Package Solution Wizard.
The Package Solution Wizard makes it easy to create a deployment package that contains your application, the Microsoft Office Access 2007 Runtime, and additional files. However, the Package Solution Wizard does not support deploying additional programs with your application.

Error when using Package Solution Wizard

Preview
I am trying to package an Access 2007 database using the Package Solution Wizard but receive the following error:

A folder name cannot contain any of the following characters:
/\:*?"<>|+,;=[]

My first thought, obviously, was to check for an invalid character in one of the file paths I had entered, but they are all correct. Next, I tried a different computer, but received the same error. I've now tried 4 computers and they all do the same thing. I'm running Windows 7 64 bit, SP1 with Office 2007, SP2.

Google tells me it's a bug in the wizard that doesn't handle subfolders for the installation directory correctly. I also saw where they eventually released a fix for the 2010 version, but no help on Access 2007. Leaving the subfolder blank isn't an option since it's a required field, so I'm stuck
 

How do I deploy the Package Solution Wizard

I now have my Access 2007 database ready for distribution and have downloaded the appropriate AccessDeveloperExtensions.exe and AccessRuntime.exe files, however I cannot get the Package Solution Wizard to run.

It seems that AccessDeveloperExtensions is installed as when I double-click the .exe file it asks if I want to repair or re-install it, but I am not able to get it torun and take me to the Wizard.
 

Access 2010 package solution upgrade option

Preview
I created an install package for my access application.
The package works correctly - install application (front end) in the first run and allow remove/repair if the user runs is again.

I created another install package for an updated version of my application.

When the user opens the package he gets an error: Another version of this product already installed .

I wish to have an "upgrade" option in my install packages, so if the user has previous version of the application it will delete the file and copy the new one instead of it (the user will not have to uninstall & install the application. It will be performed using the installation package).

Can I do it using package solution 2010 ?

Package ado with runtime app

I have developed an access app that uses ado for connection to SQL Server. I need to distribute a runtime version of this app to multiple user desktops that have Access 2003 installed.

I have used the Package Solution Wizard to an install package that includes the Access 2010 runtime (32 bit). Can I also include the ado dll in the install package (msado15.dll)? Does the install need to somehow register ado on the destination machine?

Package Solution Wizard Install Language

My Access 2010 installation is in English and I have installed the Russian language pack. When running the Package Solution Wizard and I try to change the install language to Russian, I just get a link beside it that says 'Add support for more languages' which takes me to the MS site and the 'Next' button is still grayed out. I don't see any information on the MS website other than installing the language pack. What am I missing
