Access 97 poser

By john ·
I have a problem running Access 97 on a users' PC. After Ghosting Office 97 on his machine, I try to run Access and it comes up with an error saying : "Access cannot start because there is no licence for it on this machine". Word, Excel and PowerPoint all run fine but not Access.

I have de-installed 97, installed Office 95 and brought up Access 95 without a problem. But after upgrading to 97 (using different Licence no. to Office 95) the same situation occurs with the identical message. Anyone experienced this and know of a way round it?

Many thanks

Hi,
this is covered in technet article Q141373

search for that string at

microsoft.com/technet

It looks like either the access install is not complete, or (given that you've reinstalled with the same problem) there is a problem with permissions in the registry. Hope this helps...
