MS Access configuration develops errors on Terminal Server.

We have MS Access 2007 (Volume License version) installed on our 2003 Terminal Server.

As Users use the Application, Access' configuration seems to get corupted.

Eventually an user with Administrative privileges has to open Access and it goes through the normal MS initial application self configuring routines and then everything is ok for all users.

I have given all users total permissions to the Documents and Settings folder on the TS as well as the MS Office Folder under Programs Files.

The TS is a Dell Dual Processor Dual Core Xeon Server with 4 GB of memory if that makes a diference.
Windows 2003 with Service Pack 2.

Need to know how to keep this corruption from happening.
Thanks.

cmsamford,

Can you explain exactly what you mean when you say:
  "configuration seems to get corrupted"

What "Configuration"?

How does this "Corruption" manifest itself?

MS Access has to reconfigure itself going through as if MS Office was installed and this is the 1st time Access has been runned.  As if it is resetting up the run parameters such as user, PC.

I am guessing that this resetting up is having to be done under Documents and Settings  -- All Users,
because once an administrator opens up the program and it runs thru the typical MS Configuring screens then all other users can access thte Database.

What you are descibing typically happens when two versions of Access are installed on the same machine.
Or a preveious version has not been *Completely* uninstalled.

Is this the situation in your case?

No. This was a new Terminal Install.

But another version of access might be being used as one on the Front ends of an SQL application.
