Access 2.0 ADK - compiled under Win 95 - installed on Win 3.x
Posted on 1998-05-19
Haven't used the MS Access Developers Toolkit for a long time now. Last time I used it I was compiling Access 2.0 databases while under Win 3.x and had no problem. Now I have just used it on a Win 95 machine to compile an Access 2.0 database which was used to install the runtime version on a users machine running Win 3.x. The user then received messages (when rebooting the machine) stating that a "later version of Windows was required". Discovered that a number of system files (e.g. COMPOBJ.DLL, VER.DLL) had been over-ridden by the files taken from the installation disks. By trial and error I was able to reconstruct the original files back onto the users machine , but this setup scenario MAY be becoming used more in the near future and my question is :
(i) What files from a Win 95 setup could go onto onto the installation disks which would over-ride Win 3.x files
(ii) Is there some patch (etc) to the V2.0 ADK which overcomes this problem.
Please note - the above configurations must be used in any reply as, (YES) there are still some people out there using Win 3.x machines.
