Currently, Access will install but not start up (bugs 18889 & 19297). There are two known workarounds (tested in 1.1.33):
Workaround 1:(preferred method, as it does not remove any dependencies)
- Use a resource editor to extract the manifest from ACEDAO.DLL (you will find it in the same directory as msaccess.exe). (I used Resource Tuner; it has a free trial and runs well under Wine.)
- Save the extracted manifest as acedao.manifest in the same directory as msaccess.exe.
- Delete or rename the ACEDAO.DLL located in that directory. (There is another copy in another directory–no need to change it.)
Workaround 2: (use only if there is no ACEDAO.DLL installed anywhere)
- Open the file msaccess.exe.manifest (you should find it in the same directory as msaccess.exe) in a text editor.
- Delete the following:
- Save the edited file.
