Bespoke Access mdb Database with Embedded Windows Authentication
Posted on 2013-11-13
I've taken on IT support of a client who use an Access Database. They have moved over to a new Windows domain and have new Windows login usernames.
Now when running the mdb file they get a popup:
title: <database name>
You do not have a user account.
You cannot use this application.
If i create a local account with the same username as the old Windows login they had, the application opens as expected.
Does anyone know how i can see/edit a user list which may be embedded in this file?
If it is not that simple, please let me know what lengths i can go to to change the mdb file or alternatively, how i might "fool" the file into thinking that the username may be correct?
