ACC1x: Setup Files Utility Appears to Hang


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Access Distribution Kit, version 1.1


After you install the Microsoft Access Distribution Kit (ADK), you should run the Setup Files utility (SUFiles). This utility compresses files from various directories, including the Windows and Access directories, into the SUFILES directory so that when you build your distribution disks, the SetupWizard only needs to copy the compressed files to the disk directories and does not have to recompress each time a distribution disk is built.


When you run this utility, it appears to stop responding (hang). The cursor remains a pointer; it does not become an hourglass to indicate that progress is occurring. The progress meter remains at zero percent (0%), and you do not see any hard disk activity. Eventually, the screen is updated.

This process requires varying amounts of time depending on your computer type and the amount of memory available. The average time is approximately 20 minutes. Here are two examples:

   Processor/Speed  Memory   Time Required
   486/50           16 MB    10 minutes
   386/16            4 MB    45 minutes 

This utility is designed so that you can choose Cancel. If the pointer were to change to an hourglass, you would lose that ability.
