Using Microsoft Access 2013 I would want to install the access runtime onto a number of PC's so the users can open and use a database.
How can I add the folder the database will reside in to a trusted location without having the necessary dialog in the access runtime IDE.
Not available in runtime mode(I am testing it with the /runtime flag at present on a development PC).

The easiest method is to do it the other way around: "install" (=copy) your database file in a location that already is trusted.
That could be %localappdata% (you can paste %localappdata% directly into Windows Explorer).

Here, create a generic folder like your CompanyName.
In this folder, create a folder for your application like MyApp.
In this folder, place a copy of your application and create a shortcut for the user.

You may be able to get your desktop support group to distribute the correct registry keys via group policy.  That is what I do for most clients.  Or, you can do it yourself.   Here's an article that gives you a start.

It can be hacked into the registry in whatever fashion suits:

This to permit a network location
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Access\Security\Trusted Locations]
"AllowNetworkLocations"=dword:00000001


This for each permitted path, starting at location zero
Local path

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Access\Security\Trusted Locations\Location0]
"Path"="DriveLetter:\\foldername\\"
"AllowSubfolders"=dword:00000001
"Description"=""
"Date"="28/03/2013 9:41 AM"


Network path
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Access\Security\Trusted Locations\Location1]
"Path"="\\\\server\\share\\"
"AllowSubfolders"=dword:00000001
"Description"=""
"Date"="28/03/2013 9:41 AM"


I got tired of putting them in.
Now a double click does it.
Access 2013 is version 15.0, that's the only change
Access 2007, God help you, is version 12.0

Thanks for the responses.
I'll get back in a number of days when I have had a chance to study/test them.
