Hi there Access guru's,

I have an ADP project that works OK in development.  We want to deploy it on Terminal Server, and that is where the problems begin.  The first user to access it is OK. The second one will receive a message stating that the ADP file is in "read only" mode.  Then the code starts to kack - nothing works properly.

Any tips?

Thanks for the tip SidFishes, but it didn't work :(.   Same behaviour experienced - user #1 OK!, user #2 - kack!

I also cant seem to view the above article.  Could you archive it and send it to: dwaxman@jp-inc.com?

Some other updates -
* I converted the project to Access 2002 - 2003
* I adjusted the macro/security settings to 'low'

ok...forget that link..on further investigation..

adp's and ade's are single user and aren't going to work properly with more than one...this is "by design"

the solution i've seen is to distribute multiple adp/ade's to user folders on the TS

so

user1 gets

\\ts\user\user1\myApp.adp

user2 gets

\\ts\user\user2\myApp.adp

etc

then use something like

to run a script for each user to point to the proper folder on logon...

Well, I guess that explains it!

It is hard to beleive that there isn't an article that specifically addresses this issue - how to deploy ADP projects on TS!?
