    Create Installation Disk (A2000 XP)

    I've created a small utility using Access & Adobe Acrobat.
    For a few days now I've been scanning contracts and documents for all my users to access via our network.
    All docs have been put into one folder "MMPDF" with many sub folders incorporated.

    So here's what I have:

    Access Database
    Acrobat Reader
    Folder "MMPDF" containing all internal contracts and docs.

    I would like to create a stand alone disk for distribution to our sister branch.

    The disk does not neccessarily have to auto run but will require a setup file.
    The setup file would have to:

    Check the server for a "L:" drive and create a folder "MMPDF" or even just copy the existing folder and contents from the disk to the destination.

    Install the Database to a destination on the pc.

    Install Acrobat Reader.

    I do have the A2000 developer disks but haven't installed them yet.

    Can any one give any methods or pointers on how to achieve my goal.

    (Edited by HansV to make URL into link by putting <!t><!/t> before and <!t><!/t> after it - see <!help=19>Help 19<!/help>)

    Does the other office have access installed? If yes you can use something that is FREE!! called installmaker that you can download from http://www.clickteam.com that should do all this. IF not, then you need to use the runtime of Access off the developer diks.
    I hope this is helpful
