Total Access Emailer is the world's most popular Microsoft Access email add-in product and VBA code library. Simplify the way you communicate with your contacts, and easily share the data and reports from your Microsoft Access databases with personalized emails for each recipient.
Is there a way to silently install Total Access Emailer when distributing my Access application that use the Total Access Emailer runtime library? I am rolling out my application and need to remotely install the runtime to users.
Total Access Emailer includes an add-in that lets you interactively create and send email blasts to the contacts in your tables and queries.
The Professional Version of Total Access Emailer let you send emails from code so you can add it to your Access applications and send the emails from an event like a button click. Details of how to do this are in the manual and on this page: Sending Microsoft Access Email Blasts Programmatically (VBA)
To deploy your Access database to users who don't have Total Access Emailer installed, you need to run the TAERun.exe file once on their machine. This file is included in the Professional Version in your installation folder. By default, when you run it, a user interface appears to let you know what it's doing.
You can run the EXE file without the user seeing it. Use the silent command line parameter “/s” when running TAERun.exe, and the user interface is hidden. From a batch command it would be like this: TAERun.exe /s
The current versions of Total Access Emailer has TAErun.exe which installs both the 32 and 64-bit components so it doesn't matter which Office/Access bitness the user has installed or changes in the future. Older versions of Total Access Emailer had separate TAERun32.EXE and TAERun64.EXE for the different bitness.
