I read your Utter Access thread from last December regarding access 2007 and Hiding the Access application window using API calls
I have done it successfully in thee past with 2003 but i am working on an application now where the client wants 2010 but does not want to se anything Access even though they know it is Access (go figure) i cannot seem to get it to work from the startup.
In the past I used an exe created in Visual Studio which waas a command line option to launch the db file. I associated the file with symphony believe it or not so it did not show as an access associated file in explorer and then when launched there was no Access anything.
As i recall i needed to first launch a form that had no use other than being a loaded form and then it launched my main form and closed. I really could use a tip on how to make this effect work in 2010.
While reading the thread I read a little plug you gave for Splash Builder - and if I understood correctly it appeared it was your application -whether it is or is not - can you give me some information on Splash Builder i.e.
1> What exactly does it do
2> Does it make the Access application launch in a "seamless" manner
3> The price.
thank you so much sorry to bother you.
i am pretty knowledgable with access and vba - being a fulltime Microsoft Corporation emplyoyee - starting off in Access support , then tech lead for 8 engineers for the developer line of Access and VB and then internal trainer for access and VBA - which was my waterloo lol After i stopped really interfacing with the nuts and bolts of development I resigned and have been doing Access development since. It is truly the golden handcuffs.
Thank you for your time.
