Microsoft Access 2010New Features in Total Access Startup 2010

Total Access Startup 2010 (Version 14.0) lets you centrally manage and guarantee that all your users always launch the right version of Microsoft Access with the right version of your Access database (ACCDB, MDB, or ADP).

Total Access Startup originally shipped in 2003 for Microsoft Access 2003, and was followed by Total Access Startup 2007 for MS Access 2007. Total Access Startup 2010 builds on that with additional features to support Microsoft Access 2010:

Total Access Startup 2010 Features and Enhancements

Total Access Startup 2010 adds support for launching your MS Access databases using Microsoft Access 2010 while specifying whether to use the 32-bit version, 64-bit version, or either. Because of the significant differences between the 32 and 64 bit versions, your application may only run one or the other. With Total Access Startup 2010 you can make sure your users never launch it with the wrong version.

A new version of the deployment EXE is included to support the 64 bit version of Microsoft Access 2010. If your application requires the 64 bit version, Total Access Startup verifies the 64-bit operating system and Microsoft Office Access 2010 are installed before launching it.

Total Access Startup 2010 lets you specify a preferred Access version and older versions. For instance, you can specify Microsoft Access 2010 down to Access 2000. If the user has Access 2010 installed, it is launched. If not, it tries to find Access 2007, then Access 2003, etc. If it can't find that, your message for a missing Access version is displayed.

This lets you support those with the latest version of Access immediately and those who haven't migrated. Of course, your database must support all the versions you specify.

Conversely, you can specify an older Access version and any later versions and it will work in reverse.

Support remains for all Access database formats including:

  • Microsoft Access 2007-2010 ACCDB formats
  • Microsoft Access MDB formats
  • Access Data Projects (ADPs)

Total Access Startup 2010 supports Windows 7 (32 and 64 bit versions), along with older Windows versions including XP, Vista, 2000, 98, 95, etc.

Total Access Startup 2010 supports all operating systems that work with Microsoft Access.

A revised help file and user manual is included.
