2007 Access Runtime Application Icon

Last Modified: 2013-12-21
I've tested a dozen VB codes & modules with no success to place my icon in the application tabbed documents-Display Doc Tabs. My icon is a proper .ico file format and is in the same folder as the database.  The desktop and startup icon works fine and the icon shows up in the top and bottom tool bars, it's just the Folder Tab which is missing the icon.

The distributable package works on my XP PC but does not work properly on my test XP Laptop with 2003 Office/Access.

Note: For those that don't know, when you use Access 2007 Runtime it disables the icon feature that you can setup in the Access design environment:

The following features are not included as part of the Access 2007 Runtime without additional customization:

    Navigation Pane

    Title bar text/icon (can be specified by the database instead of by Access)

    Default Office Fluent Ribbon

    Quick Access Toolbar

    Shortcut menus

    Access Help

    Designers (including Filter by Form)

    Visual Basic Editor
