[THIN] Re: Content Redirection

Hi Chad,
 
The location of system.mdw is defined globally on the server. From
memory (don't have system with access 97 available) you're looking at
HKLM\Sofware\MIcrosoft\Office\8.0\\Access\Jet\3.5\Engines, systemdb.
 
Just change the systemdb value to h:\windows\system.mdw (provided h:\ is
users home drive) and add a line in usrlogon.cmd:
 
if not exist h:\windows\system.mdw copy %systemroot%\system32\system.mdw
<file://\\system.mdw>  h:\windows
 
regards,
 
Rick

        Now....1 user has access open, another tries to open access
(97), issue with the C:\xxxxx\system.mdw.

         

        I forget, what do I do with that so multi-users can use Access
on the server?

        Good thing I opted to not install it.  I have 3 users who need
it, and I would have limited them to 1 server.

        Issue we have found, running 5 instances of Access 97 can bury a
server.

        Efficient from the aspect of the guys who run the servers, but
from the guys who are making DB's and using Access heavily, 97 is much
quicker.

         

        As for running 2 versions, it's easy to do when your talking
Access97. You need to install it after 2003 and then change the MDB
associates back to 2003 as you please.
        
        I have decided not to install 97 on my servers for the 3 users
that need it, but I have the option of letting them still run it on
their desktops becaue they are fat clients.

        Thanks.

         

        If I had a choice, it would be ONLY be Access 2003, as it is
MUCH more efficient than 97.

        Don't think so - Server to Client is only for URLs 

         

        I suppose you could publish the content. This isn't pretty mind
- easier to live with the Access on the server. 

         

        If you're concerned about running different versions of Access
on a single box do some searches through Rick's posts  - -he's described
some neat methods of getting multiple versions of access running on the
same server for users.

        I have an application that pulls MDB's.  Rather than have Access
(97 is required) on the server, I would like to use content redirection
so that if an MDB is encountered, it attempts to open with the local
install of Access on the client machine.  Is this possible?
