Maintainers: About Maintainership
Can open an existing db. Can modify table structure. Can add/delete records.
I can create a new table, but I'm limited to "create in Datasheet mode" because the template picklist comes up blank. If I click OK it defaults to Datasheet.
What does not
Cannot create a new db, nothing happens when I click "New".
In an existing db show table/query dialog boxes come up without tables/querys, cannot select anything. Query designer fails. Can open a code module, but save changes fails, compile fails. New Report brings up the template picklist which is empty; cannot continue. Ditto for a new form.
For existing objects, when I try to save design changes I get a message box saying the VBA Project in the database is corrupt and the save fails. Opening the relationships window is the same. Same message with Compact/repair.
What was not tested
Anything not mentioned.
Even though it runs I have to give it a garbage rating because it's unworkable beyond creating and maintaining tables. I also installed comctl32, comctl32.ocx, corefonts, jet40, mdac28, vb6run and vcrun2008sp1 which may be why I'm getting further than some other testers. I couldn't even open a db until I installed mdac and jet. The Visual C library probably isn't doing anything for me, but I stuck it in based on another tester's suggestion.

This gets my install kinda working, but it takes FOREVER and a half to render my forms, unhiding the database window won't work (it's not listed in Unhide), and switchboards fail spectacularly.
