Installing both Access 97 runtime and Access XP runtime

MS Office Access


  • 1. MS-Access closes when deleting an object
    1. I highlight an object 2. Press delete 3. Ms-Access prompts that it cannot find the object - make sure it exists 4. I click "Ok" - then MS-Access shuts down Often recompiling the mdb solves the problem, but not always. Is this a setup issue?
  • 2. Error on one workstation - help
    I have a shared database on a network. The database uses Crystal Reports Viewer to view crystal reports. The Database is working on all workstations except one. Originally we were getting a message that stated that the library or project could not be located. The Crystal dlls and active X controls were copied from the System and System 32 folders on one of the computers that successfully runs reports from the database. Now we are getting an error 438 when selecting a report from the reports menu. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

  • 4. Configuration Control
    Is there a program that will allow configuration control to be applied to an access front end? I am looking for something that will let me create a baseline of the FE and then as I make changes it will maintain the Delta. Currently I am just storing each version of the FE as a seperate file labled with the date. It would be nice if there was a program that would highlight the differences between 2 version. thanks Terry

Installing both Access 97 runtime and Access XP runtime

I am willing to know if I can install both Access 97 runtime and Access 
XP runtime on the same Windows 2000 computer. Not that it is my prefered 
path, but I now have both Access97 and Access XP applications to run on 
the same client PC and no time to upgade the Access 97 application to 
have it run with the Access XP runtime.

I have a client that is presently running an Access97 solution under

    'The office System Pack cannot be installed on this system because the
    languages are not the same. Install the Office System Pack for the
    appropriate language on your computer. For assistance, contact your

I have tried to uninstall Office 97 however the error still appears.

Could some one please help???


3.Access 97 Runtime with Access 2000 installed


We have distributed some Access 97 runtime databases to end users as front 
end.  The backend is located at the File Server.

Recently, their machines get Access 2000 installed for other purposes.

We would like to know when they open the Access 97 runtime databases, will 
they be asked for converting it to Access 2000 format ?  If YES, and they 
press YES, will the runtime still works for them ?  Is there any problem if 
the front end is Access 97 and the backend is still running Access 97 ?

We only have the Access 97 ODE but without ODE for Access 2000 / 2003. 
Should we purchase a copy of the ODE ?  If YES, which version should we 
purchase ?


4.Access 2000 runtime install problem and Office XP ( without access xp) on same machine

Hey all,
            I am having a problem installing Access 2000 runtime on a
machine. The machine has Office XP installed on it but it is the SBE version
which DOES NOT include a version of Access XP. When I try to install the
2000 runtime it will get about 1/2 - 3/4 of the way through and then just
sits there and will not finish. Does anyone have a idea about what is going
on or have a solution to this problem ?

Thanks in advance,
