Total Access Components is designed to be both easy and cost-effective for redistribution. Included with the product is a royalty-free runtime distribution license that allows you to redistribute the controls with as many Microsoft Access applications as you want to non-Total Access Components owners.
Total Access Components includes an automated setup program that you can include with your Access application. Called TACRUN32.exe and TACRUN64.exe, these setup programs:
You simply need to run this file once on each user's machine and the controls will come to life in your MS Access application.
If you want to include and updated version of Total Access Components for your users who may already have a previous version, our single-file ActiveX container means you only have to update one file. All 30 controls are handled with one file, simplifying the complexity.
If you are using Total Access Components 2007, 2003, 2002, or 2000, installing Total Access Components 2010 updates all Total Access Components controls automatically. This means that you do not have to remove the older version of the controls and replace them with the new version!
The Total Access Components 2007 and 2010 controls have different identifiers (GUIDs) than Total Access Components 8.0 for Microsoft Access 97. This means Access 97 applications using Total Access Components 8.0 can coexist on the same machine as applications using newer versions of Total Access Components. The controls need to be deleted and reinserted with the new controls for the new features.
