unable to run program

Recommended Posts

I am trying to create a macro to run our billing program. When I look at the properties of the icon done by the installation software, I find this:

 

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Access Runtime\OFFICE11\StartAccess_2003.exe" -wait=30000 /excl /runtime /profile "ImagineTime" /wrkgrp "C:\Program Files\BothWorldsSoftware\ImagineTime\system.mdw" "C:\Program Files\BothWorldsSoftware\ImagineTime\TB2000.mde"

 

When I tell the macro to run this command, it just does not open. I get a bunch of errors.

 

Anyone has any suggestions?. I greatly appreciate it.

Consider the Activate/Launch Program dialogue.

 

Your Program/Path name should be exactly this - note there are no double-quotes!:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Access Runtime\OFFICE11\StartAccess_2003.exe

 

And your Progam Parameters should be this - note you must provide the double-quotes here, because you have embedded spaces:

-wait=30000 /excl /runtime /profile "ImagineTime"

/wrkgrp "C:\Program Files\BothWorldsSoftware\ImagineTime\system.mdw" "C:\Program Files\BothWorldsSoftware\ImagineTime\TB2000.mde"

Try using the Launch and Activate command. You will need to place: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Access Runtime\OFFICE11\StartAccess_2003.exe in the Program Path Name field and: -wait=30000 /excl /runtime /profile "ImagineTime" /wrkgrp "C:\Program Files\BothWorldsSoftware\ImagineTime\system.mdw" "C:\Program Files\BothWorldsSoftware\ImagineTime\TB2000.mde in the Program Parameters field.
