P: n/a
trying to get some old stuff off an old database.
installed access 97,yes access 97. on a W2K, update4 machine with 500mg ram.
ALL other programs run great.
i get: 'out of memory' "A system error occured., or there isnt enough
free memory. To start ms access close unneeded programs and try again."
is this a 16bit application problem?
the app wont get passed the opening icon.

it does run on much smaller ram machines.
