MS Access Application Launcher is a tool that provides the facility of launching a Password Protected MS Access Application (ACCDB/ACCDE/MDB/MDE) without telling the password. It runs a pre-scan on the computer to make sure that all required prerequisites are fulfilled so that the Access App does not encounter any kind of failure/crash because of something being missing from the system. It ensures the application to launch in a well-planned and controlled manner so that everything looks professional.
MS Access Programmers can protect their code by compiling their application (converting ACCDB to ACCDE). They can disallow undesired modifications to their data by adding a password on the backend file. What we are talking about is adding a password on Frontend File and letting it open through a launcher (without divulging the frontend's password).
Programmers, who distribute their source code (don’t even bother about compiling the code), may question the need for password protection and may call it an undesired extra level of protection. Their policy is right too but works fine as long as they are engaged in project development. But the moment they think of developing a standard product, they must think of disallowing unwanted modification to their work (code+data).
MS Access Programmers can protect their code by compiling their application (converting ACCDB to ACCDE). They can disallow undesired modifications to their data by adding a password on the backend file. Only a few know that such password protection is not complete protection because the connection string of such tables (as links are available in the frontend) can expose the backend’s password. The decision of adding a password to Frontend will not work because in such a case as we have to share the frontend password with the user, without which they would not be able to operate the software.
So, the need is to have the ability to open a password-protected frontend without divulging its password to the users. What we offer is an EXE file that holds the frontend’s password and launches the frontend intrinsically.
Quite a large number of applications exist in this world that are developed in Microsoft Access VBA. Such applications are usually developed to suit business needs and they are capable to serve the purpose too. Most of such applications are quite good in serving the businesses and have grown over time to suit the changing needs.The area where these applications suffer is the professional presentation. They are not delivered in a way professional softwares are downloaded/installed/run.
MS Access-based applications suffer frequent crashes either because of bad coding or because of underlying platforms not being in order, hence finding challenges in capturing a large market share. By investing a small amount of money in MS Access Application Launcher, you can give professional look to your application. We also give proper ICON to the Access App so that it has a distinguished identity (does not look like another excel file).
