Total Access Startup Ships for Microsoft
Office Access 2010
Centrally Manage the Deployment of Access Applications to Your Users
VIENNA, VA – September 13, 2011 – FMS is pleased to announce the
release of Total Access Startup 2010 with full support for the 32
and 64 bit versions of Microsoft Office Access 2010.
Total Access Startup makes it easy to centrally manage Access
databases and versions. Ideal for Access developers and
network/database managers, Total Access Startup lets users
seamlessly launch their Access applications and always use the
latest version of their database with the right version of Access.
For best practices, Microsoft Access applications are usually divided into a
front-end application database and a back-end data repository/database. For
optimal performance, the front-end database is installed on each user's desktop.
Making sure each user has the latest copy and is running the right version of
Access can be challenging and time consuming.
Total Access Startup simplifies the process of distributing Access databases to
every user's desktop and ensures the latest version is installed each time it's
launched. Separate options are available for a first time installation versus an
update if additional installation routines are required.
With multiple versions of Access on users' machines, launching the right version
of Access is critical. Total Access Startup specifies which version of Access
should be launched with the database and what to do if a user doesn't have that
"Total Access Startup is an amazing product and an incredible value.
It's not only made my job as a developer easier but it
provides a great service to our users and eliminates the
need for our IS staff to be involved in what would normally
be a time consuming process with a lot of room for errors
and confusion," says Total Access Startup customer Margaret
Written in a lightweight manner that requires no dependencies on a user's
machine, Total Access Startup creates a Windows shortcut that is distributed to
each user to start the application. When launched, it checks the network to make
sure the latest version of the database is installed and launches it with the
right version of Access. This centralized management makes it easy to distribute
upgrades and migrate between Access versions by making changes in one place.
Total Access Startup also automatically handles deployment
to user folders and understands user profiles, which
simplifies multiple users sharing physical machines, virtual
machines, and use of Remote Desktop and RemoteApp
"With Total Access Startup, developers can focus on enhancing their applications
rather than the hassles of distributing them to each desktop every time," said Luke Chung,
President of FMS. "Our enterprise customers have found Total Access Startup particularly
beneficial and cost effective for distributing Access databases across their networks,
while maintaining centralized control, and speeding up application release
