Access 2007 Runtime Deployment Cannot Delete or Update Records in Local Tables and Opens Read Only

I have an Access 2007 database (.accdb) and I have Access 2007 Runtime installed, as well as the full version of Access 2007. When I run it with the /runtime switch from a shortcut, it works fine. When I package the solution from the Package Installation Wizard and install it from the package, it fails serially to delete records in local tables and load the local tables from the back end, which is part of the startup process. It errors at each table that should be cleared and loaded. The error is -214746259 "Could not delete from specified tables" followed by -214746259 "Operation must use an updateable query" with a source of Microsoft Office Access Database Engine. It then opens the datbase read only, which does not occur when running the database from a shortcut.

Is there something I am doing wrong in the solution packaging or is it just that the .accdr runtime version is by definition read only? If the problem is that .accdr is read only, how can I work around this to develop a solution package that is not read only?

The ACCDR is NOT readonly unless you make it so. That extension simply tells Access to run the database in Runtime mode.

Does this happen on multiple machines, or just one? It sounds suspiciously like a bad Runtime install, but if this occurs across more than one machine then the culprit would be your application, not Access.

If you test the db using the Runtime ONLY (i.e. a machine without the full version of Access installed), do you get the errors?

Did you install the db to a Trusted Location?

How can I uninstall the Runtime so I can reinstall it?

I haven't yet tested the db using the Runtime because I am on Vista and Windows 2000 on my two computers and I have to find a machine with Windows XP to test on. I will do that next week.

I changed the installation location to a trusted location and I still get the errors and the db open Read Only.
