Access Runtime Error with Switchboard on Some computers

Here is the application. Its a simple application really. I have a
db created in Access 2000 which opens to a switchboard created by the
switchboard manager.

Now the problem. This only works on some computers. I installed
access 2000 on two brand new, out of the box, computers and on one it
gives me a run time error and the other it doesn't. Both computers
are running windows XP. Though the operating system doesn't seem to
be the issue since it also happens on other computers running 2000.
Haven't had this problem with 98 yet so I can't say if it does the
same.

The computer(s) that it doesn't work on I get runtime errors when
trying to open the switchboard. Not sure anyone has a real good
solution to this yet since I have looked for and tried all of the
suggestions I have found thus far which include: checking to see what
is registered and registering the .dll that was recommended(whi ch
sometimes works for converting databases). I have applied the service
packs for office/access/windows none of which seem to help either.

Its a bit irritating that it doesn't work for everyone even though
they all appear to be running the same stuff. I would like to fix
this issue and get it so that everyone can use the switchboard
properly.

The computers which are affected can not even create a switchboard
because of this problem. And I have no idea which computers will be
affected until I put the database on the computer or try to create a
switchboard on that computer.

Any thing that will help me be less clueless would be appreciated. I
have tried to fix this for some time now and I'm getting a bit
frustrated with it.

Thanks

This does not address your problem directly but the short answer is
not to use the switchboard, it is IMHO a most dreadful piece of
software, create your own with a form and buttons.

While I could do that the problem isn't only the switchboard. Just
that's the easiest one for everone to relate to. I can make a button
to open up the forms and reports I want but the underlying issue of
the database access through vb scripting is the problem that I haven't
been able to solve.

It only happens on "some" computers. And those computers could
actually have been from the same manufacture and have the same
software loaded. There has to be something different that causes
this or a fix that will fix this. So far the only fixes I have found
on the news groups have not fixed my problem.

Personally, I'd rather just migrate the entire thing to an internal
web based application. But I can't do that.

If anyone has other suggestions, I'm more than willing to try them
since this has been an irratation to me for some time.

Thanks

I did some customizing on my switchboard (changing colors and adding graphics) to make it more appealing. I tried to add another item, and it told me that 8 was the limit. Fine.

So, I decided to create a new switchboard and scrap the old one...

As I understand it, to distribute a runtime version of Access 2003 with my app I need to spend £600 on "Visual Studio Tools for Office System package" which contains the RT plus a load of stuff I do not want. Or.... I can supply the client with a copy of "AccessRT.msi" which is on my Office 2003 pro CD and not tell anyone! Who is being more unscrupulous, me or Microsoft? Surely Microsoft forcing me
