I use a 3rd party company software called MSI wizard by sage key it creates/builds an install/.exe program, out of my .mdb file.
I have build a couple of .exe files using MSI wizard, and they all give the same error as posted above. I did go to my other pc and copy Launchaccess.exe to the path on the shortcut in win 7, and it worked fine.
It appears as if the .exe when executed in windows 7 wont install Launchaccess.exe. Because its not even on the hard drive. I have emailed sagekey w/this issue. If I execute the exact same .exe in xp or vista it wopatentinvrks fine and the Launchaccess.exe is where its suppose to be.
Inside sagekey MSI wizard there's a place that will allow me to add files (Multiple), so I added the LaunchAccess.exe but it will not allow me to have it install into the C:\Program Files (x86)\Microosoft Access runtime\Office11> directory, It doesn't support the (x86), so I had it copied it to a different folder, and then I changed the shortcut path. And it works fine.
What seems fairly easy to me isn't always the case with end users.
If I could add a file/code to the same place in the MSI wizard where i added the LaunchAccess.exe I might be able to save a few dollars.
Code would need to be something like.
If C:\Program Files (x86) exist copy LaunchAccess.exe to
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microosoft Access runtime\Office11
Then the shortcut path that win 7 makes will be correct.
Any help w/be greatly appreciated.
