Access 2000 and Windows ME (repost)

Hello,

This is a repost (see under the "dotted" line) from 2 days ago. Hope someone
could help.

Norton Antivirus 2003 is installed on this computer. Could it cause a
problem? Another interesting thing is when I open a email with the DB
attached (on the ME computer), the file is not "enabled" in the file list,
it's grey. First time I see this.

Any suggestion?

Hello all,

I just created a simple Access 2000 DB which has only tables in it: no
query, no forms, ... It's a back-end in fact. I created it on
W98 and used it on NT4. I tried to transfert both the front and back-end
on Windows ME but it doesn't work.

When I try to open the front end it's asking me the DB password (never had
any). And when I try to open the back-end (tables only) it's telling that
maybe the DB is corrupted and it's asking me if I want to repair it. When I
answer Yes, the following message says that the DB format in not
recognized.

I'm telling you all this by memory (no precise error messages) because I
do not have access right now to this ME computer.

Another interesting point that could help you to help me it's when I
create a new DB using Access 2000 on the ME computer and try to open it on
W98 or NT4, it opens without any error message, just fine.

Anybody know what could be the problem? I suspect something is missing or
not up-to-date on my ME computer needed by Access but don't know what.

It sounds suspiciously as if the DB is corrupted. You'll find the best
collection of info and links on that subject that I know about at MVP Tony
Toews' site, http://www.granite.ab.ca/accsmstr.htm.

I've never, even on someone else's computer, used Win ME, but I've used both
Norton Internet Security 2003 and NIS 2004 on this Win 2000 Pro machine
without any problem.

MDBs are a prohibited file type, by default, in recent versions of Outlook
and Outlook Express. That could account for one of the symptoms you mention.
In Outlook 2002 / 2003, you can reset properties to eliminate this
prohibition; in earlier versions, you can ZIP the files, or just change the
extension, so that your files get through, then change the extension back.
But that is not the problem with the troubles you're having opening the
database.

This is not a question, but I need a bit of advice. I need to create a software solution for users in various countries. Normally I would use Access 2000 and simply deliver the databases for use.

In the (bad) old days of using Access97, I would have simply sent the databases together with the runtime...

Hi, If we want to compile an Access 2002 database and distribute it to others, will the compiled software run on any PC, like Windows 98, Windows 2000, etc. Also, you don't have to have Access 2002 in order to run it do you? Thanks!

Hi, Here is my situation. Can anyone provide insight? I have developed a database in Access 2002. I am planning to distribute it as a split MDE (front) / MDB (back) to be used by the Access runtime and also full-version. Some of the client workstations will have Access 2002 installed. Most of them will have the runtime installed. However, I can't find the Office 2002 Developer Edition anywhere! Nobody has

I use the Access 2000 MSI Wizard from Sagekey and they don't know if the bug documented on page 32 of the Access 2000 Developer`s Handbook Volume 2: Enterprise Edition still affects the runtime. Apparently page locking is invoked when using the Access run-time record than record-level locking. This also affects Access 2000 but if you patch Access the bug is fixed. I really don't know about the runtime though. Does anyone know if...
