    Deployment package for Access

    Hi Chris, I tried creating a package using SSE, but was unsuccessful. I have a Frontend (.accde), a Backend (.accdb), an icon file (.ico) and the Access 2013 Runtime. Can I use SSE to create ONE installation package that will install the above, irrespective of whether Access is installed on...

    Deployment package for Access

    Hi Chris, Many thanks for the information which you have provided, which I will read once I get some free time... We are looking to buy a deployment package for our product (www.VisualDentist.com). Even though we have a cloud-based .NET software package as well (VisualDentist.dentist) many of...

    Deployment package for Access

    As a software developer, I tell my clients that if they cannot use my software without a manual, it is my fault. To read SSE's manual would take a very long time. What is wrong with creating a video "How to create a .exe using a FE, a BE and a runtime in 60 seconds". Maybe a bit too optimistic.

    Deployment package for Access

    Yes I have seen it. It is 20 minutes. It should not take 20 minutes to create a .exe. I got lost in the second screen where it says if you have a FE and BE look at the Help.

    Deployment package for Access

    In the past I used Sagekey, but they do no longer offer the product. I have a Front-end .accde, a back-end .accdb and a runtime (in this case for Access 2013). My installation is independent of any Access running on the pc, since it uses the runtime. I have looked into SSE Setup, but their...

    The future of Access

    Many thanks for the background information. I know many developers who have never used Jet/ACE as their database with Access.

    The future of Access

    If we want to be precise Access is not a DBMS, it is a very user friendly software development environment which comes bundled at present with the ACE db. I am assuming that the very useful table above refers to ACE. Also it is definitely not Relational in the sense that SQL Server is..

    SQL statement takes too long

    Thanks again CJ, since this was solved with your input. Regarding the creation of an index for field tblTransaction.lngPartyID, table tblTransaction is in an attached db. Merely executing a CREATE INDEX did not help. I will do some more research.

    The future of Access

    This may be due to the fact that everyone uses Word, many people Excel and fewer people Access.

    SQL statement takes too long

    Many thanks, the SQL should delete all Customers who do not have a Transaction (where there is no entry in tblTransaction with a the Customer ID which is called lngPartyID in tblTransaction)

    The future of Access

    Many thanks. I would need to move from A2013 when I can no longer use it, depending OS etc. If it works why move.
