Greetings, All.

I am supporting a client with 45 front end applications and 45 back end applications that are all utilizing the same MDW security file (I know, this is a nightmare).

Vbs scripts are available that update a front end location on a user's machine with the current version of an application that is parked on the server. The scripts then build an icon on the user's desktop that runs the newly updated application from the local drive. I have run 6 various scripts successfully.

What I don't understand is that each icon that was built on my desktop has target set to "\\servername\MdwLocation\System.mdw". How is the name of the .mdb to be run determined?

Thanks

Normally it would include 3 parts msaccess.exe pathtomdb pathtomdw

Hi Daniel,

Problem solved. I had to do a copy and paste into notepad to see the entire value and it does have all of the parts you mentioned. Thanks for the quick response!
