Trying to open Access 97 application with non-admin NT user

P: n/a
Hi,

I downloaded an Access 97 application as an NT admin user, then switched to
a standard NT user, but couldn't open the application. I get the error:
"The MS Jet database engine cannot open the file C:\Program Files...It is
already opened exclusively by another user or you need permission to view
its data".

Any ideas?

Regards,
Philip H

Does the standard NT user have read/write permissions on the directory
housing the 97 database? Users will have to have these permissions ..
