We have a couple of users that need to access an old Microsoft Database created in Access 2000 which has a security (mdw) file associated to it. They are using Access 2010 and I have created a shortcut with the following target.
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14\MSACCESS.EXE" "O:\Programme Files\Orange Structures 2000 O.mdb" /wrkgrp "O:\Programme Files\Opcs_DB.mdw"
O:\ is the correct mapped drive and I have also swapped this out for \\Sever\Programme Files\etc on both folder targets and still get the following error.
You do not have the necessary permissions to use the O:\Programme Files\Orange Structures 2000 O.mdb object. have your system administrator or the person who created this object establish the appropriate permissions for you.
This was working until the beginning of this week. nothing on the server has changed, the users PC's have not changed and the folder permissions are correct and working (tested by creating a folder in the same location).
The users are on Win7 SP1 and Win8.1, both with all updates and Access 2010 has all of its updates too. Something else that may cause a problem is that we are using Office 365 so they also have Office 2013 installed too but from what I have read I cant use 2013 Access to see this database.
Any thoughts on why this has all of a sudden stopped working?
