Bugs: Access 2000: Setup Flags

Author(s)
Dev Ashish
  Often times, Office/Access 2000 registry keys or various files might not get written properly, leading to weird error messages when using an Office component.  While some issues can be resolved by registering individual DLLs, others may require you to re-install Office.

During a typical install process,  MSI may not check registry keys or file versions installed by a previous run.  Note that there are a lot of files that get written to folders other than the specified Office folder.  To ensure that MSI checks all these files and the appropriate registry keys, you can run the setup as

Setup  /fmcue data1.msi

where the data1.msi file is the file containing the installation instructions for MSI.

The individual setup flags can be described as follows:

Flag Description
f Repair the installation
m re-write all local registry entries
c reinstall is a file is missing  or corrupt
u re-write all user registry entries
e reinstall if a file is missing or if installed version is older
