FormOpen error after installing IE 7 beta?

P: n/a
In an Access97 MDE, I have a toolbar button with OnAction:
=OpenForm("MyForm2Open")

MyForm2Open exists in the database, and the associated recordsource
isn't empty. So, clicking on the toolbar button opens the form.

However, after installing Internet Explorer 7 Beta, one of my customers
now gets the message:
"Unable to open the specified window. Try again later. (Err 2501)"

The problem still exists after uninstalling the IE7 beta. Reinstalling
the Access97 application doesn't fix the problem.

Any ideas?

Well, that's what you get for installing beta software on a production
machine. It's not as if MSFT doesn't sternly warn against that
(http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/.../default.mspx).

Error 2501 typically means that during startup of the form, the
opening of it was cancelled. For example you can get this if in
Form_Open you write:
Cancel=True
as the only line of code. Perhaps there is a path in your code that
does just that.

A customer did the install...unfortunately I don't have much control
over them! :-)

The application is an MDE runtime that I distribute over the internet,
so the form code itself doesn't seem likely to be the problem,
especially since it worked OK for the customer before this IE7 beta
installation. I'm asking the customer to run a program to check
dependencies now...but thought maybe someone else has seen an Access97
incompatibility with the IE7 beta.
