Do I need a full version of Microsoft Access installed?
Installation of CI Badge includes Microsoft Access Run-Time version which allows our users to run an Access desktop application, such as CI Badge without purchase or install of a full version. A full version of Microsoft Access is highly recommended for efficient troubleshooting and accelerated turnaround time on technical issues. Anyone interested in exporting data out of CI Badge will need a full version of Microsoft Access installed and licensed on the computer with CI Badge installed.
What's the difference between Microsoft Access Run-Time and a full version of Microsoft Access?
Microsoft Access Run-Time version allows users to view, edit and delete data, as well as running queries, reports, form etc. The full version of Microsoft Access allow users to also change the design of Microsoft Access tables, queries, reports, forms, etc.
If I have the full version of Microsoft Access installed, will I need to change any settings?
If you have the full version of Microsoft Access the Macro Settings must be set to "Enable all Macros." This will be performed by a CI Solutions technician during the installation phase.
