Microsoft Access - Join a Microsoft Access Workgroup in Windows XP What replaces the Wrkgadm.exe file?
Posted on 2004-04-25
How do I join a Microsoft Access Workgroup in Windows XP? I have the following information for Windows 2000:
Join a Microsoft Access workgroup
1 Exit Microsoft Access.
2 To start the Workgroup Administrator, do one of the following, depending on which operating system you are using:
· If you are using Windows 95, use My Computer or Windows Explorer to open the System subfolder in the Windows folder, and then double-click Wrkgadm.exe.
· If you are using Windows NT Workstation 4.0, use My Computer or Windows Explorer to open the System32 subfolder in the WinNT folder, and then double-click Wrkgadm.exe.
· If you are using Windows NT Workstation 3.51, open Program Manager, and then double-click the Workgroup Administrator icon in the program group where you installed Microsoft Access.
3 In the Workgroup Administrator dialog box, click Join.
4 Type the path and name of the workgroup information file that defines the Microsoft Access workgroup you want to join, and then click OK, or click Browse and then use the Select Workgroup Information File dialog box to locate the workgroup information file.
The next time you start Microsoft Access, it uses the user and group accounts and passwords stored in the workgroup information file for the workgroup you joined.
Important If you are setting up user-level security and need to make sure that your workgroup and its permissions can't be duplicated, you should make sure the workgroup information file that defines the workgroup you are joining has been created with a unique workgroup ID (WID). If such a workgroup information file doesn't exist, you should create one.
The problem is, what replaces the wrkgadm.exe file in Windows XP? This can not be done using any programming language, because the people doing this are not programmers. I am using Windows 2000. Thanks.
