Access2010 - Package Solution Wizard - File to Package - ERROR: This file is in use
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.
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.
What's wrong... Please write below.
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
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.
This article describes how to modify a deployment package that you created by using the Package Solution Wizard to deploy an additional program when the user installs your application. To demonstrate this, you will add the Microsoft Save as PDF or XPS Add-in for 2007 Microsoft Office system programs to an existing deployment package created by using the Package Solution Wizard.
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.
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 ?

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?
