Access Runtime 2010 Trusted Network Locations

Hello,

We are upgrading to an Office 2010 Standard environment from Office 2000. We plan on running Access Runtime 2010 on our clients but have run into some trouble with trusted locations and/or documents on the client machines.

I've followed everything in the ticket listed below but still no luck:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Microsoft/Development/MS_Access/Q_26342108.html?sfQueryTermInfo=1+10+2010+30+access+runtim+secur+warn


The trusted locations work if the databases are run from the local client machine but not from a network location. I've manually created registry entries and also used the tool listed at the following link:
http://www.accessribbon.de/en/index.php?Trust_Center:Trusted_Locations


When manually creating or modifying the registry entries I've tried including the full network location (\\servername\directory\) and also tried with the network share location (X:\directory\) for the Path entry but nothing appears to work.

Has anyone run into a problem similar to this?

Have you enabled Network Locations in the Trust Center?
(In Access 2007 it is located here, I am sure it will be something similar in Access 2010)

Office Button-->Access Options-->Trust Center-->Trust Center Settings-->Trusted Locations
Then Check ON the box for:  Allow Trusted Locations on my Network
(But note the warning about this not being recommended...)

If this does not solve the issue then you should turn off this option, to be on the safe side

Hi Jeff,

Thanks for your response. After a closer look, Trust Center settings are not available in the Runtime version of Access. I can set the setting you mentioned above in a different Office Application, but it looks like the entry is only reflected for that specific application (i.e. changing the setting in Word does not also change it for Excel, PowerPoint or Access).

Makes sense as the runtime is akin to a "Stand alone" application...

But leave this Q open for a few more days to see if another Expert has any more input...

Answer Found.

Registry Keys should be as follows for Access runtime to allow network location databases to be run:

=======================================================================
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Access\Security]
"VBAWarnings"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Access\Security\Trusted Locations]
"AllowNetworkLocations"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Access\Security\Trusted Locations\Location#]
"AllowSubFolders"=dword:00000001
"Path"="\\server\location\"
=======================================================================

Seeing that these are an HKCU, they can be added via the OCT after application install has been carried out.

I have a Windows 7 PC in a workgroup with Access 2010.
I opened on this PC a VPN to a remote Windows XP PC in a domain and  tried to to access a remote mdb (Access 2010) using a mapped drive.

I could not get it working without security pop-up until I added "VBAWarnings"=dword:00000001
Thanks for the Tip!

Thanks.
Just an update about the OCT; that never did work. We ended up making a .reg with the registry entries in it and ran it on everyone's PC. Not elegant, but it worked.
