Symptoms

You would like to package your Microsoft Access 2010 database using the Microsoft Access Package Solution Wizard but are unable to locate the Package Solution Wizard.
 

Cause

The Microsoft Access 2010 Package Solution Wizard add-in is included with the Microsoft Access 2010 installation but is not installed by default.

1. Select Start, select Control Panel, and select Programs and Features. (On Windows XP, select Start, Control Panel and click Add or Remove Programs.)
2. Select the Microsoft Access 2010 or Microsoft Office 2010 installation and choose Change
3. Select Add or Remove Features and click Continue
4. Expand the Microsoft Access group and expand Add-ins
5. Click on Package Wizard, select "Run from my computer" and click Continue

After Microsoft Access 2010/Microsoft Office 2010 configures, you can start the wizard by following these steps:
 
1. Open the database you wish to package.

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14\MSAccess.exe
