There are a few reasons that may prevent Total Visual Agent from properly installing.
Yes. Total Visual Agent 2007 requires MS Access 2007, or the free runtime version of Access 2007, installed on your machine.
Total Visual Agent 2003 and earlier do not require your machine to have Microsoft Access installed. The differences is Total Visual Agent 2007's support for the ACCDB file format.

To reinstall Total Visual Agent 2007 or upgrade from a previous version, follow these steps:
This issue occurs if the machine you are using does not have a copy of Microsoft Access 2007 or the free Microsoft Access 2007 runtime installed. The runtime version is available on Microsoft's web site: Download Access 2007
Total Visual Agent 2007 has the following system requirements:
This error occurs with older versions of Windows, and means you do not have the minimum Windows service pack installed. Total Visual Agent is not supported under Windows NT 3.x. If you are using Windows NT 4, please install Service Pack 6 (or higher).
This issue can occur for several reasons:
No. Total Visual Agent can successfully launch a macro in your database if it has workgroup security or doesn't have a password.
Support for running macros on databases with a database password was introduced in Total Visual Agent 2013. This and many other new features were added in the 2013 version.
Indexes and relationships could interfere with Total Visual Agent's ability to perform an archive of your table. Total Visual Agent makes a copy of each table individually. If relationships require certain values to exist in other tables, it may fail to save your records due to missing records in the tables it depends upon. By not including indexes and relationships, it avoids problems associated with the order tables are populated.
You should archive individual tables when it's not possible to make a complete database backup (if users are in the database). The purpose of the table data extract is recovery of data that was added since the last time a complete copy of the database was made (with the Archive action).
The recommended backup procedure for databases that are heavily updated during the day is:
In Total Visual Agent 2013, this action now creates tables with basic indexes and properties. This and many other new features were added in newer versions.
With Windows Service!
Supports: All Access, Jet Engine, and Visual Basic versions
