  1. Allow Access to Linked Table Manager in RunTime Version

    This would allow developers to ensure their Access Application will work on Client Systems where the Backend is on a different Server to the development one.
    Often, even after installation, Client Hardware can be updated and a change of path to the Backend is required. This simple option would save hours of configuration time.

    The Access RunTime version is intended to run Access solutions and not to allow users to design them. Clearly the Linked Table Manager is a developers’ tool and therefore isn’t visible in the runtime.

  2. Can we have the option when you run a runtime for the first time to remove the security warning

    If the Access Front End is not stored in My Documents, the only way to remove the warning is to poke around in the Registry and put in the path where the Front End is stored. This is dangerous and not user-friendly. Ask the user if he/she accepts the risk and then allow use without the warning.
