Did you create a custom INI file? Are you using the runtime version with setup? Following is a copy of one of my custom ini files. You should only have to change the lines pointig to specific drive areas, and the title bar - but look close just in case.

I'm not using a custom ini file.  Using Access's. Plus I am using the Run time.  The systems that this will be installed on do not have Access on them.  This will be a multi-user application.  I need to load it on the Network & have the users run & share the same database.

That's probably your problem - look at page 10 of the book Access developers toolkit Advanced tools for custom applications. This explains that you must use a custom ini file and edit the libraries section if you're using runtime - you can't distribute the wizards with runtime.

If you don't have the book - send a comment and I'll try to type in some of the text for you. But you'll really need the book.

Plus I just found out.  You can't create disks while using ADT for Access 2.0 in Windows 95 if the project is going to be installed on Win 3.1 computers.  Something about some files get copied into it from the Windows directory. Below is the full text of the info i found.  Written by: Chris P. Vesper.

" There are a few points to watch out for when creating install diskettes for an Access application using the Application
Developers Toolkit. The toolkit creates a professional set of setup diskettes, complete with a setup program customized with
the name of your application.

However, since the setup program copies DLL's from your system to make the install disks, you have to make sure that the
version of Windows you are running when you create the install disks is not newer than the version they will be installed on.

For example, don't create diskettes using Windows 95 to be run on a computer using Windows 3.1. This is exactly what
happened to us. We created the disks in Access 2.0, running in Windows 95. We gave then to the client, who tried to install
them in a computer running Windows 3.1. The setup program told them that it was completed unsuccessfully, and even worse,
their copy of Word 6.0 stopped working! After re-installing Word, and then creating the disks using Access 2.0 under
Windows 3.1, the install went fine."

Something very important to know, since I use Win95 & the computers I'm developing for use Win 3.11!!!!!!
