MS Access shortcut doesn't work after upgrade to IE 7.0
Posted on 2006-11-28
After upgrading to Internet Explorer 7.0, I am having difficulty opening all MS Access adp files. It seems that mdb files are not affected. The adp files will not open from their desktop shortcut. They also will not open if you go into Windows Explorer and open the adp file directly.
The only way to get the file to run is to first open the MS Access application, then do a file -> open command. Another work-around to get the desktop shortcuts to work is to force this in the Target attribute of the shortcut Properties as follows;
TARGET: "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\MSACCESS.EXE" "s:\poseidon new\poseidon.adp"
However, this is cumbersome to do for dozens of Access applications on every computer in a large department.
Any ideas on what the issue may be?
