Problems After Installing Access 97 and other Access on the Same Computer

If the procedures described in this article were not followed when the second version of Access was installed on the computer, you may have problems when you try to start Access. Following are descriptions of the error messages or problems that you may encounter, as well as the resolutions.

One error message you may receive is:
Microsoft Access can't start because there is no license for it on this machine.
Toresolve this behavior, follow these steps:
Click Start , point to Find , and then click Files or Folders .

In the Named box, type Hatten.ttf .

In the Look In box, type C:\Windows\Fonts or the path to the Fonts folder on your computer. If you are not sure of the font folder's location, open Windows explorer and verify the directory where Windows is installed. Note: If you are on Windows NT 4.0, the path may be C:\WINNT\Fonts

Click Find Now to start the search.

Under Name , right-click the Hatten.ttf file, and on the menu that appears, click Rename .

Change the name of the file to Hatten.sav.

NOTE: You can find the Hatten.ttf file in the Fonts folder under the name, Haettenschweiler

Insert your Access 97 or Office 97 CD into the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive.

Click Start , and then click Run .

Type the command to run the Microsoft Access Setup program and use the /y switch to reregister Access 97. For example, type:

\Setup.exe /yIn the Installation Maintenance Program dialog box, click Reinstall . The Setup program updates the system registry for Access. When Setup is finished, start Access.

RE No License

I actually tried this from MS KB and neither of the two files exist.

Do you see any .ttf files?

by SomeAdmin In reply to RE No License

The license problem was very common and the support KB did address the problem. So we should backtrack to the basics.

Have you set the options in Explorer to view hidden and system files? You should find the hatten.ttf with the other true type fonts.

I had to install Access 2000 to get the font. Thank you.
