Installing Access in a Networked Environment

If you're using a network operating system, such as Windows NT Server 3.x/4.0 or Novell NetWare 3.x/4.x, you can use either of the following methods to install Access in a network environment:

  • Install Access 97 on the network server. All workstations run the server's copy of Access 97 and don't require a copy of Access on their local disk drives. This approach saves disk space on the workstations but results in much slower operation of Access. If workstations also run Windows 95 from the server, operation can slow down even more. The degree to which the operating speed is affected depends on your network's performance and the number of users accessing the network simultaneously.

  • Install a copy of Windows 95 and Access 97 on each workstation. In this case, users share only Access .mdb files. Access requires between 30M and 80M of disk space, depending on the features you include in the workstation installation and whether you previously installed OLE 2+ server applications such as Microsoft Word 97 or Excel 97, or are installing Access 97 as a component of Microsoft Office 97 Professional Edition. Use this installation method for computers connected in a peer-to-peer network.
