Hide "Read-Only" massage bar

I'm deploying an MS Access ade front end on a terminal server environment, so many users will run the same access file, but access has this annoying thing that if you open the same file more then once it displays on top a message bar saying that the file will be opened read-only, which I don't care that it's read-only since there is anyway nothing to change as far as the actual file, nobody will change the design, nor the data, since its just a front end to a sql server db, however this message is very confusing to innocent front end users which leads them to erroneously believe that perhaps there data won't get saved, how can I suppress this message bar,

Turning off the security message bar in security center doesn’t get rid of the read-only message.

first i have to say that if the access file is set to read-only (in the os file properties) it produces the same symptoms, even in single user mode

having said that, after some research, here is the deal.

Access has a macro command to hide the message bar named "HideMessageBar", however running this command on startup, via AutoExec macro or load of the startup form, doesn't do the trick, evidently because at the point of startup is premature to run, so it's a little ugly process, either via a timer and run it after 3 seconds or perhaps run a bound form which triggers the message and run it on current event (not open and not load)

adp were designed by MS to be single user files - not shared.

If you are trying to share a file then this is probably not the only issue you will have.

in version 2003 i don't get any message, only in 2007 and 2010, the message displays on top.

is there any workaround to hide it upon loading the app?

Perhaps, ...but remember MS has Deprecated ADP's in Access 2007 and newer, so there may never be a workaround for these newer versions.

But to be sure, ...let's see what some other Experts might post...
