Vista - WinXP environment and database corruption?

P: n/a
The company I work for has developed a Microsoft Access application.
Currently, it is distributed with the Microsoft Access 2002 runtime.
Some of our customers have begun purchasing new Vista computers and we
have seen some unsettling results. In particular, after installing a
Vista computer on their LAN, one of our customer's experienced
repeated database corruption. We suggested they discontinue their use
of the Vista computer. Once this was done, the corruption subsided.
We decided to perform an informal test and convert one of our XP
computers over to Vista. After using the program for 10 minutes, the
database became corrupt. Has anyone else experienced similar issues?
I have a suspicion that the corruption may be due to trying to execute
the program under Vista using the MS Access 2002 runtime. To test
this hypothesis, I installed the 2007 runtime on our converted
computer and have not experienced any database corruption yet. Has
anyone else had similar problems/experiences running Access
applications under a heterogeneous Vista/XP environment? Thanks.

Hi Vincent. Have a look at this MS article.

There is a hotfix available.

Hope this helps.

I did come across this article. However, the listed conditions
for this problem are not met by my situation:

"This problem may occur if the following conditions are true:
The database that you are using is a shared database that resides on
a Windows Vista-based computer.
Two or more Windows Vista-based computers are trying to use the
database at the same time. "

For both of my cases above, the database was being hosted by an
XP computer and there was only one Vista computer on each LAN.
