Unhappy I can't modify the manifest file per the book!

Ok...this is not a good sign.

I bought the book hoping to really learn some things. At chapter one, I've tried to change the manifest file per the book. Access says the .exe file is not associated.

When I delete the file and rename the saved copy back to the original, Access opens as usual.

Why put this in the book, if you can't edit it? I am using Access 2007. I have Vista Ultimate.

Thanks.

Tony

Red face Never got it to work

I gave up on it. I looked around the web and tried to get in contact with the authors. After, that I haven't even picked up the book in six months.

Default Me too

I'm trying to get it working by searching on the Web for hints. So far, no joy.

I did get the GUID generator working, though. I really wanted that one. So I have some value from the book.

This is old, but I'm curious - where in the book does it talk about this? And what is your purpose of modifying the manifest? As far as I know, you aren't modifying the existing manifest in YOUR installation but you would be creating one for your installation package for installing on Vista or Windows 7. I tried searching the index for where it might be referenced in the book but couldn't find it.

Default Answer to question

It starts on page 35 in the section "Windows Vista Task Dialogs." Following the instructions in the book didn't work. But I'm using Windows 7, and the Task Dialog is supposed to now be part of the Windows 7 API Code Pack (WindowsAPICodePack.zip on the Web). Do you know how to use these Task Dialogs in Windows 7 in Access 2010?

Turns out I don't have this particular book (I could have sworn that I did). So I apologize for posting. I was hoping to help out and can't it would appear. Sorry about that.
