2003 Access won't open ANY database

P: n/a
I just upgraded to Office 2003 and none of my .mdb files open!
Double-clicking an mdb file opens Access, but the database never
opens. No error messages. No hourglass This happens to any mdb file I
try to open.

Does anyone know what could this be caused by?

thanks. crispy

From which version?

Have you tried opening an mdb from within Access 2003?

Had the same problem myself. Solved by creating a new blank database
and then importing the Tables, Queries and Forms from the old
database. Might work for you.

Can you open the MDBs from the menu (File/Open) ?

Perhaps try a repair install of Office ?
