In an Access database application you can change the Icon for the application from Microsoft's Access Key icon to one of your own in the Startup properties. That's not an issue if the application resides on the local machine, but if you try to access it via a mapped drive it defaults to the local machines path and can't find the icon file on the server.

I have several people that will access the application on the server via a shortcut icon using their mapped drive letter and I would like for them to see the application icon, and I'd like to do it without having to replicate the path to a copy of the file on their local machine (which I did try on mine and it works - but it's a weak workaround). I tried a relative path and it won't accept that, and I also attempted to use a URL to wwwroot and it wouldn't accept that either.

Anyway to accomplish this?

I don't think so. I used your weak workaround at one of my
last jobs because they wanted the exact same result with the
icons. Copying the .ico file and the shortcut to their machine
was the only thing that worked.

That's what I thought. Thanks.
