The companion CD that ships with this book contains many tools and resources to help you get the most out of your Inside Out book.
If you install the sample files on a Microsoft Windows Vista system, a Windows XP system, or a Windows Server 2003 or later system, you must run the installation program as an Administrator to install the files in the default location. If you do not do that, Microsoft Office Access 2007 opens all the database files as read-only. If you are unable to run the installation program as an Administrator, change the default installation location to a subfolder in My Documents.
