Free Address Book Logo

Contact management software community #18



I use Win 10, so I have .NET 4.6, which should supercede v 2.2. The config file expects connectionString="Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=C:\Users\Athena\AppData\Roaming\GAS Softwares\Free Address Book\AddressBook_2.0.mdb". But there is no GAS Softwares directory in C:\Users\Athena\AppData\Roaming.

After "connecting to existing database" in LibreOffice Base, I tried to open the database. An error message stated that the connection to the data source could not be established. Not a valid password. Error code 214721843. How can I open mdb file in LibreOffice? I'm using the portable version of the software.

I remove the password for the database, but when I try to open it in MS Access, it ask for a password. When I use the Free Address Book, it does not ask me for the password.

I need to modify multiple records in MS Access but I cannot do it in the application. Thank you for your help.


Sharing on a network

This address book looks very good, I am very keen to use it. Can someone provide more information about how this can be shared on a network. Does Free Address Book need to be installed on every PC? What exactly should the shortcut look like that points to the shared database?

Error message when I after installation.

I am getting the following error messages:

Unhandled exception has occurred in your application. If you click Continue, the application will ignore this erro and attempt to continue. If you click Quit, the application will close immediately.

The Microsoft Jet Database engine stopped the process because you and another user are attempting to change the same data at the same time.
