The Auto FE updater target folders can be in the Users Application Data folder in each PC or elsewhere on their hard drive.. Or a user specific network locations which is especially useful if you are using Terminal Server or Citrix. . The Auto FE Updater checks for new FE MDB/MDE/ACCDB/ACCDE and associated files each time a user launches the utility. If there are new files, they will be copied down before the application starts. If an application is already in use, new files will be retrieved the next time the utility is run.

Once the utility has completed the user setup it will then start the Access front end MDE/MDB/ACCDB/ACCDE passing, if required, command line arguments such as Workgroup file name. If none of the above steps are required they are bypassed and the utility just starts the Access MDE/MDB.
The utility has been tested with success on every version of Access from 2.0 to 2010. It has also been tested on Windows 98 and NT 4.0 to Windows Server 2008 and Windows 7. This utility will also work with Terminal Server and Citrix Servers as well as for ADP/ADEs or any other software which requires refreshes of files to the client workstation. It also works with the Sagekey Acess Deployment Tools start up program or any other exe.
You can also use the utility copy and start other applications too such as Word or Excel. Or just to copy files and display a file count message to the user.
