I have a new installation of Microsoft Sharepoint 2010 Enterprise with SQL Server R2 and Windows Server R2 on a, Intel Quad Core 8GB system.
When I attempt to use Microsoft Access 2010 to publish a Web Database I get an error that says.

HTTP://WIN-RPRAMDLF5F:44442:/BLANK/ did not repond. Either the server does not exist, Microsoft Access Services are not enabled on the server, or the server is using an older version of Microsoft Access Services that is not compatible with Access 2010.

Publish error  

Here is a screen shot that shows I have SharePoint Server Enterprise Site features activitated.
Enterprise features enabled
I have also read that I should see ACcess Services when I click "New" under the "Manage Service Applications" option from "Application Management" in CA. However it doesn't show that which may be part of the problem. See screen shots below. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Notice Access Services is not listed.
New button doesn't show Access Services

In central admin if you go to Upgrade and Migration and click on Convert License Type - does it say you have an Enterprise license?

Did you choose Advanced - Complete when you installed SP?

In the same section in Central Admin, click Enable Enterprise features.  Does it show that they are activated?

I am not sure if I chose "Advanced - Complete" when I installed it. Sorry.

When I clicked on "Enable Enterprise Features" everything was greyed out and the "Enterprise" was selected under the "Use these features" option.

I'm guessing when you installed you chose Advcaned - Web Front End.  This doesn't install all necessary pieces.  You need to reinstall and choose Complete.

Ok, do I have to uninstall first?
When I run setup it only gives me choice to Repair or Remove? How do I re-install?

I would run config wizard, disconnect from farm.  then run the install and choose remove.

then run the install again, choose COMPLETE.  run the config wizard and connect to your previous farm.

or you can just run the install and choose remove (without disconnecting first).  you may have to go into sql and manually delete all the databases after.  then run the install again.

I uninstalled it and ran the install again, it asked for the Product key, I entered that, then it asked for installation locations and I accepted defaults. Then the only option was to click "Install Now" button. Does that sound right? I thought I would get other options for Custom install or Complete Install.

It finished the installation and prompted me for the Configuration Wizard. I started that and chose New Server Farm...then it is asking me about the SQL database so I think I have to delete the old ones first, right?

During the install options the Advanced button is greyed out. See below

Do I need to go back and change something?
