Access 97 on XP

P: n/a
A client has asked me to update an Access 97 program. They don't want
to update their systems to the current version of Access. I have
Office 2002 on my XP Home notebook. We tried several times to get
Access 97 to load on my system and couldn't. We even tried removing
the current version of Access from my system. It goes through the
entire load process but fails to start saying that I don't have a
license. On another attempt, it went through the install then ran
Access 2000.

Any ideas out there?

Try searching the Microsoft support database, such as...
http://search.microsoft.com/search/r...ess+97+license

At one time there was a small utility program available from Microsoft
to fix that problem, or there was a way to manually tweak "something"
but I don't remember the exact cause of the problem (could have been a
font which was not properly registering in the font manager)

An easy fix for this is to go and search for the Hatten.ttf font. Rename it and
reinstall Office/Access 97. Then rename the font back, this will resolve your
issue.

Search google for "hatten" and "license" and all should become clear.
Or you can just go here:
