How do I have linked tables in Access 2007 update to the current location when the app starts after being packaged?

Last Modified: 2015-03-26
I have a DB I created with BE linked tables (like I'm supposed to).  I have packaged the application and included the BE database but the location is obviously different when the enduser installes the app so it errors out as soon as the app opens.  I have added
RefreshLinksToPath Application.CurrentProject.Path to the load event but it does not work.   Am I missing something?  How am I supposed to "Package" the application if I don't know where the user will be installing?  Is there a way to set it default to "Current" Location?
