I have an application I maintain for a company. The users run the application from an icon on their desktops.
Today I updated the application. It is an Access application split into a database backend and an accde front-end. I updated the front-end today. The accde resides on the server and is run from there.
It is for a small shop generally 2-3 users at a time not much contention.
Steps I did today
Downloaded the new version with a temporary name (Dev_App.accde)
Moved the existing version to another directory
Renamed the new version (Prod_App.accde)
Relinked the tables to the database
Ensure permissions were set correctly
Had a user test the new version.
They got an error.
I checked their icon and it was now pointing to the old version in the new directory which they didn't have permissions to.
I fixed the icon to point to the correct version and starting directory and they ran fine
Why did the icon update?
Can it be set to not update since this is the way we will manage changes in the future?
I used the above method since we have had issues in the past with permissions and I had to revert to the older version.
