View Full Version : Access 2002 Merge modules/Installshield object

09-29-2003, 12:02 PM
I upgraded from Installshield Pro 6.11. I upgraded to DevStudio 9 - the project upgrade had very few problems. However, the Access 2000/2002 modules or objects are not available - the whole reason we upgraded in the first place.

I downloaded the Access 2000 MSM and placed it in the Modules\i386 and Objects directory but the option to add the Access 2000/2002 object/merge module still does not come up.

Is there a way to add this module or refresh the seemingly static list of objects?

The list of modules cannot be refreshed easily within the IDE. If you close and reopen the IDE, that should accomplish refreshing the list.

However, InstallScript MSI Objects (like Access 2000/2002), cannot be used in Installscript (i.e. non-MSI) projects.

That is understandable.

Is there a way that I can get the Access 2000/2002 Installshield Object (non-MSI) that were in previous versions of installshield? I noticed that the Access 97 object is currently installed with DevStudio 9.

Professional 7 only had Access 97. Same with Professional 6.31.

I realized that after I went searching for an Access2000/2002 Object for Pro 7.

Welp, time to learn MSI.
