Using a Windows Form .exe as a Class Library .dll
I have a Windows Form application compiled to a .exe that contains standard classes and one windows form class. I would like to reference that .exe in another project. The dialog to addreferences shows .exe, I add the file to my project, I can see the classes from that file but when I run the second executable I get a "cannot load type" error when I try toaccess the classes contained in the referenced .exe

That behavior seems strange to me since the IDE accept the .exe as a reference and even "intelisenses" its classes.

I do this because I want a standalone version of the form, but I also reuse it in other project. what's the best practice in my scenario? I'd rather not maintain both aClass Library project and a Windows Form project that includes the same code.

Edit database after making it executable and hiding navigation bar
I'm pretty new to Access 2010, I do have experience with 2003 but everything seems to be different now

It'll still take me a few days until I'll be ready to make the database I'm building executable but I'm already wondering about the following:

There will be only one person using it, but I don't want him to see all tables, macros and forms (except the ones that are open of course), so I want to hide all the navigation bars and make it executable. I found threads showing how to do that, so I'm sure I will be able to figure that out. My question is if and how I'll be able to edit the database after all that? Is there a way that I can add an admin button which makes everything visible after I type in a password?

One other thing which is confusing me is that I'm working in Access 2010 but I can only save as Access 2007 db - what's up with that


COM and executables
I'm pretty new to the Windows programming world, so I'm a bit shaky as to how to get started on this project. Basically I'd like to have a COM object that can be instantiated from an ASP page - I actually have this part working.

Then I'd like that COM object be able to communicate with a single executable running on the server. So there might be many COMobjects instantiated (depending on how many people had requested the ASP page) and
I'd like them to all talk to the one executable. Is this easy to do with COM? Should I be using CoGetClassObject from within the executable?


Split Access DB and make it an executable file at the same time
Can anyone guide me through the process of splitting an Access database and then creating an executable file of the back and front end?

I have a database that will be used by multiple users so I would like to split it. But I would also like to make it an executable file.

I know how to split the database, but not sure how to make it a standalone such that new records from the various users of the front end are updated to the back end tables.

access on Citrix (max number of access.exe instances
I have a client who's decided to run all their apps from Citrix. Although the access db I designed is split and every user has their own FE copy (even on citrix) they are all using the same access.exe file installed on the server. All is running well at the moment as they only have a few concurrent Citrix users, but I am beginning to wonder how many instances of access.exe can be be run at the same time. Am I going to have problems as the number of users increase


Open pdf document read only
Is there a way to set a pdf document to read only when opening it? I have the following code that opens a pdf, but I also want to prevent the user from changing it in any way. No deletions, additions, substitutions or edits of any kind. I'd rather not use Hyperlink or Atachment data types either.

Private Sub OpenPrint_Click() Dim PDFPartPrint As String Dim AdobeProgramPath As String Dim RetVal As Integer AdobeProgramPath = "C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Reader 10.0\Reader\AcroRd32.exe " 'Hard coded program executable path!

'MsgBox (PDFPartPrint) RetVal = Shell(PDFPartPrint, vbNormalFocus) End Sub

Creating txt file by usage of exe program
I need to find a way to read in my files.

There's a program .exe that reads c-code to convert binary data to normal data creating a txt file. Is there a way to call this from access and vba?

I've been doing some googling and some freestyling and came up with this:

Shell("C:\Users\SSS787\ReadLog_new\ReadLog.exe, &00000023.D03 \s > C:\Users\SSS787\ReadLog_new\slasken.txt")

Im trying to use the *.exe program and the file *.D03 to create the txt file.


MSACCESS.exe has problems that MSARN200.exe doesn't
I'm trying to redesign an old database (mdb) that was created with Access 97 because some reports are not being generated correctly. It was distributed with and intended to be opened by MSARN200.exe. This works fine, but I cannot redesign any forms or debug any problems. But when I try to open up the same database with a MSACCESS.exe (97 version), I get the troublesome "the current user account doesn't have permission to convert or enable this database." I've joined the workgroup as an Admin (stored in an MDA file that was also distributed with the database) to no avail. Is there something that makes the MSARN200.exe unique in opening the database?


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.
