Run time Access 2003 does not show standard toolbars in certain environments

I have an Access 2003 ADP project that is compiled to an ADE file and then packaged with the run-time using the developer extensions package wizard.

Now, I have two clients running different versions of the ADE but fundamentally the same application. One of my clients (on all machines) can see the standard Access toolbar, whereas the other client cannot. Neither client has Access installed as a stand alone application, they both rely on the run-time version I supply.

I made sure that the option in Access to Allow built-on toolbars, etc are all ticked.

Has anyone come across a similar problem?

Point of note, all users exhibit the same behaviour on each site (ie all users either have or don't have the toolbars and menus) so I can only guess that there is either some sort of group policy preventing the toolbars from working on one site or that I have missed an option in the package wizard that allows the toolbars.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Thanks, that seems to answer it. It is a bit of a mystery why it works on one site. Maybe they do have a copy of Access installed and I just haven't spotted it.

Thanks again.
