On a computer running a network installation of Microsoft Access version 2.0, running Setup for the Microsoft Access Solutions Pack version 1.0 results in the following message:
Setup could not find Microsoft Access version 2.0 installed locally on your system. Please install Microsoft Access version 2.0 before installing this application.
The Microsoft Access Solutions Pack requires that Microsoft Access be installed on the local computer and will not accept a network location for the Microsoft Access directory.
The same message occurs if the Solutions Pack setup cannot find MSACC20.INI.
If the MSACC20.INI file is missing, either recreate the MSACC20.INI file manually or reinstall Access 2.0 to recreate it. Then run the Solutions Pack setup again.
Otherwise, either install Microsoft Access 2.0 locally on the computer, or use the following steps to force Setup to believe that Microsoft Access is installed locally.
NOTE: The technique documented in this article does not work if you are running on a computer that does not have a local hard drive. Also, this technique does not work for the ADT. Access MUST be installed on a local hard disk to install the ADT and run the Setup wizard.
