Access 97 on Win2k?

By LouMcHen ·
Is it possible to install Access 97 on Window 2000 Pro? Also, does it work okay?

I just got a new computer with W2K. But my office has only Access 97 program. I need to complete a task. It's kind of urgent. I offer 608 points for the satisfying answer. Thanks for your help in advance.

Go to

There is information about upgrades to Win2000 so Access 97 can be used

Thanks for the info on the upgrades. But you didn't answer my fundamental question. Access97 doesn't really work on Win2000.

Access 97 will work with office 2000. You will have to remove Access 2000 before you install Access 97. We did this at work last week and found this out. But we ran into trouble and had to uninstall Access 97 and Office 2000 and start form the being.
We installed Access 97 only then Office 2000 EXPECT for Access 2000.
It's easlier going from Office 97 to Office 2000 then from Office 2000 to Office 97
Good Luck

I don't have Access 2000. Thanks for your analogy.

I installed Access 97 ok though it wouldn't run under win 2000 without the Office service pack 1. Neither would any of the other office programs.
Once that was loaded it has been fine with no other issues

Sorry, I waited this long to reply. Because I tried all of the above possible answers, including this one. None of them helped. Thanks for trying.

Finally, I found the basic solution - uninstalled Access97 (which never worked) and entire Office 2000 from my Windows 2000 Pro computer. Then, reinstalled Office 2000 and Access 2000. I ended up buying a copy of Access 2000.
