Installing the Security Wizard

After you have downloaded Wx1051.exe, install the Security Wizard. To do so, follow these steps:
  1. Start Microsoft Access and open any database.
  2. From the File menu, choose Add-ins, and then choose Add-in Manager from the submenu.
  3. In the Add-in Manager dialog box, choose the Add New button.
  4. In the File Name box, select SECURE20.MDA, and then choose the OK button.
  5. When the Security Wizard appears in the Available Libraries box, choose the Close button.
  6. Quit and then restart Microsoft Access.
The Security Wizard runs only in Microsoft Access version 2.0. It works with Microsoft Access version 1.x databases provided that they are first converted to Microsoft Access version 2.0 database format. If you try to use the Security Wizard in Microsoft Access version 1.x, you will receive an "Out-of-date database format" error message, followed by the message "Some library modules could not be loaded" when you start Microsoft Access. Databases created by the Security Wizard are in version 2.0 format.

The Security Wizard may take some time to run. For example, securing the sample database Nwind.mdb on a 486/50 computer takes approximately 13 minutes. The Security Wizard's About dialog box gives further information about what the Security Wizard does, as does the doc file included with Wx1051.exe.
