  • I have seemed to exhaust every internet option.  I have a surface pro 4 and a i7 desktop.  They both run the same access database.  I open a file in vba using a hyperlink to open an external file on the desktop and have no issues.  I try the same on the surface pro 4 and I get a Microsoft office dialog stating "Some files may contain virsus blah, blah, blah".  I can't figure out why

  • Well it appears that some unknown security software on your Surface Pro thinks there may be a virus somewhere. Since ACCESS itself dosen't know one way or another, I would check your computer security settings. This has nothing to do with ACCES itself.

  • Hi Mohican83,

    you provided the very less information about your issue.

    post your VBA code so that we can know what exactly you are doing in code.

    where the Database file is stored? is it stored on server so that both Desktop and your Surface can access it?

    also you did not posted the full error message.

    you just posted ,"Some files may contain virsus blah, blah, blah".

    try to post the full error message or post the screen shot of the error will help us to better understand the issue.

    also try to check the difference between the settings of your Desktop machine and Surface pro.

    if you find any difference then let us know about that. also inform us what settings you checked already.

    provide the above mentioned information, we will try to reproduce the issue on our side and try to test the issue.

    as I can see that you are trying to share your database and want to access it from multiple machines.

    so you may try to refer link below may give you some more information.

    Thanks for your understanding.

  • Hi Mark,

    >> I try the same on the surface pro 4 and I get a Microsoft office dialog stating "Some files may contain virsus blah, blah, blah".

    For this issue, it is caused by security, I suggest you try link below to disable it.

    # Enable or disable security alerts about links and files from suspicious websites

    https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Enable-or-disable-security-alerts-about-links-and-files-from-suspicious-websites-a1ac6ae9-5c4a-4eb3-b3f8-143336039bbe

    And, I suggest you try add below registry.

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Common\Security
    DWORD: DisableHyperlinkWarning
    Value: 1 (disable the warning), 0 (enable the warning)

    Best Regards,

    Edward
