    I've just used Access 97 to create an application that is going to end up being run in a Windows XP environment. I removed Office XP Small Business from the XP system in an attempt to avoid DLL issues, but after installing my Access 97 application on the XP system, I get an error message to the effect that Access cannot find MSO9.DLL when I try to bring it up. Any ideas?

For instance, if the widget was rec'd on 12/5/03 and shipped out on 12/8/03, I want the total days to be 1....not 3. My db has a rec date field and a compl date field. How can I tell Access97 to omit the weekend days during my calculations? Right now, all I know to do is take a compl date - the rec date, but that includes the weekend days. Thanks for any assistance!

    Using MSAccess 2000 on Win2k Access help is acting strangely. If I select a property/method in my code and hit {F1}, the help file opens to a grey screen. If I try to hit {F1} again, I get "No Help Available" If I open up the help screen from the menu and select a particular command from the index list, I can't see any of the hyperlinks (usually there will be a link to "examples", "methods", "notes", etc.) Basically, Help is corrupted. I tried reinstalling it twice, but still have the same problems. What gives? Thanks, -Mark

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

Postby Grant » Wed, 23 Jul 2003 04:30:52 GMT

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,

1.Installing Access XP Runtime on Windows 2000 Professional Machine

After much ado, I'm coming to the conclusion that the Access XP
runtime does not work at all. I've followed the following procedures:

1. Performed clean Windows 2000 Professional installation with Service
Pack 2

2.  Created a distribution setup on development Windows 2000
Professional machine, with Office XP Developers Ed. installed, with a
.mdb file which I made sure I could open with Access XP using
Packaging Wizard...included Runtime.

3.  Ran installation on clean Windows 2000 machine.

4. Ran shortcut created in Start...Program Files...MyApp menu

At this point, the Access runtime shell popped up with nothing
available inside.  Literally nothing... Basically, all I could do was
close the shell. I was doing this just to test to see if my problems
were with the runtime, which they seem to be.

My immediate problem is in a visual basic application I'm trying to
distribute.  The .mdb contains linked tables to our SQL Server and a
number of reports.  The error occurs at the line where I instantiate
my Access.Application object. The vb project has a reference to the
Microsoft Access 10.0 Object library located in the "C:\Program
Files\Microsoft Office\ Office10\" directory. The file MSACC.OLB has
been installed and registered along with the package on the target
machine. However, when the code hits the line "Set accApp =
CreateObject("Access.Application"), it errors with the message
"Run-Time Error '429': ActiveX component can't create object.". I've
tried this method of object creation as well as Dim'ming the accApp
object directly as Access.Application and changing the Set command to
"Set accApp = New Access.Application", but it gives the exact same
error at the exact same spot. Both the development machine and the
target machine are Windows 2000. I've tried installing the app on a
Win2K service pack 4 machine (same as development machine) and a Win2K
service pack 2 machine (clean machine with only Windows and Access XP
Runtime installed) and get the same result on all.

2.Access 2000 installed over Office XP, without Access

can Access2000 be installed on a system running Windows 
XP and Office XP. During Office XP setup Access XP was 
not installed. While I know I can probably load Access 
2000 in a diferent folder, I was wondering if there is a 
licensing issue or license registration issue as when you 
load Access97 over Office 2000 and have to rename the 
hatten file and reload.

Thanks for your assistance

3.Access 2k runtime will not install on machine that has Office XP

Hey all,
    I am trying to install Access 2000 runtime on a machine that doesn't
have Access but has Office XP installed. The runtime installation gets about
1/2 - 3/4 of the way through and just stops. Is there something special that
I need to be doing considering the runtime is older than the version of
office that is on the machine ?

Thanks in advance,
