Hello All,

Just recently my company purchased Office 2000 Developer Edition because they were in need of purchasing the Access Runtime Library, to distribute their Access Databases.

However as of yet, I have been unable to use the Access 2000 Runtime Development Tools to distribute these databases due me not understanding the process clearly (previously in Access 97 it was a case of install the program and away you went, now I haven't got a clue where to start as we weren't given any software manuals).

An urgent response would be appreciated

Many Thanks In Advance

Matt

Office includes quite alot of information in its 'Help' files. If you can't find what you're looking for there you might be able to find more in-depth Office Developer information in the MSDN Library.
Office 2000 - Developer

There are also several books that you can acquire. Check Fatbrain.com or Que Publishing. You will be able to find titles for MS Office and Access development.

B :cool:

MOD2000: How to Distribute Replication Manager 4.0 by Using the Package and Deployment Wizard?
The information in this article applies to:
Microsoft Office 2000 Developer

Moderate: Requires basic macro, coding, and interoperability skills.


Summary
You can use the "Package and Deployment" Wizard to distribute Microsoft Replication Manager version 4.0 with a Microsoft Access 2000 run-time application.

In order to distribute Replication Manager 4.0 and its associated files, include the Replman.exe file along with any other files that are to be distributed with your run-time application. Replman.exe has an associated dependency file (Replman.dep). This dependency file allows the "Package and Deployment" Wizard to automatically include the other files required to run Replication Manager 4.0.
More Information
In earlier versions of Office Developer, the Setup Wizard provided a list of components that you could include with a run-time application. By selecting Microsoft Replication Manager from the list of components, Replication Manager was included with your application. The "Package and Deployment" Wizard, however, does not provide a similar list of components.

To include Microsoft Replication Manager 4.0 with an application built by the "Package and Deployment" Wizard, follow these steps:


In Microsoft Access 2000, open the database that you want to include in the package.
Press ALT+F11 to open the Visual Basic Editor.
On the Add-ins menu, click Package and Deployment Wizard. If Package and Deployment Wizard is not listed on the Add-ins menu, click Add-in Manager, and then load the wizard.
Click Package.
Click Next on the first two pages of the wizard, and unless you need to change the settings for your specific application, accept the default settings for the Package Type and Package Folder dialog boxes.
On the Included Files page, click to select the Include Access Runtime check box.

NOTE: If you do not click to select the Include Access Runtime check box, you receive the following error message during installation of your application if Access 2000 is not already installed on the computer:

The application you are installing requires Microsoft Access 2000. Setup cannot continue.
Click Add.
Browse to the C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Replication Manager 4.0 folder.
In the Files of Type list, click Applications (*.exe).
Click Replman.exe, and then click Open. In addition to Repleman.exe, the following files are added to the list of included files:
Msremr40.dll
Msrpfs40.dll
Mstrai40.exe
Mstran40.exe
Rplman40.cnt
Rplman40.hlp


Continue through the wizard by clicking Next. On each page, make any changes that your application requires.
On the Finished page, type a script name, and then click Finish.
Close the report that is displayed when the package is completed.
To test the application that you built with the "Package and Deployment" Wizard, follow these steps:


In Microsoft Access 2000, press ALT+F11 to open the Visual Basic Editor.
On the Add-ins menu, click Package and Deployment Wizard. If Package and Deployment Wizard is not listed on the Add-ins menu, click Add-in Manager, and then load the wizard.
Click Deploy.
Click Next.
On the Package to Deploy page, click the script name that you entered in step twelve of the previous procedure.
Continue through the wizard by clicking Next. On each page, make any changes that your application requires.
On the Finished page, type a script name, and then click Finish.

When your run-time application is installed, Replication Manager 4.0 will be included.

PS.Cheers BMAN :cool: For The Pointer!!!
