Access Updater Upgrades

Planned Possible Upgrades for 1.x

- support for ACCDE files - AccessUpdater.ACCDE
     - have Access automatically CREATE and distribute an ACCDE file (if this is possible)

- properly LOCK DOWN admin features

- better error handling for missing files

Bug Fixes / Enhancements

- load startup form should be a sub in AccessUpdaterF
    - code in two places

- more user-friendly "will restart" screens

- pretty up the interface / hide admin buttons, fields users don't need to see, make main form expand for admin only

- 3 second admin shutdown

- user can snooze upgrade for X minutes

- check to make sure server drive is mapped (exists)


Notes / Instructions

- Show how to use Google Drive or OneDrive to map a drive letter and distribute updates online


Possible Upgrades for 2.x

- custom startup splash screens for both your database and AccessUpdater

- option to hide startup form in both databases

- default Settings file (startup form, remote db)

- issue commands to workstations
    - reboot now, shutdown, possibly reboot PC

- lock users out of database - good for server updates

- reboot at specific time of day like 3am

- realtime network usage display form for admin

- relink tables

- link to tables on SQL Server or Sharepoint

- distribute FE via mapped Google Drive folder
