Access no license

If you are running Windows 98, there's a link on the page described below that will get you a utility to fix the problem.

If you havve any other version of Windows, this page tells you how to fix it:

(Sometimes when I cut and paste URL's it looks ok to me but once the answer is posted, an extraneous space will have crept in. Make sure you delete any extraneous spaces or the page won't load).

You didn't mention version or os. What I did when this happened to me: completely uninstalled Access (on the cd there is a tools section with an executible to completely remove all traces). (Back up your databases first!) Reinstall Access.

From the MS Database Help:

IMPORTANT: This article contains information about editing the registry. The information in this article applies to: Access for Windows 95, Access 97

NOTE: If you are running Windows 98 ONLY, you can download a tool that corrects the problem that is discussed in this article. Q191224 ACC97: AcLicn97.exe

NOTE: In the following steps, when you reinstall Access 97 by using the Setup Maintenance Mode, you do not have to uninstall Access first. This operation simply returns the computer to the installation state that it was the last time you ran Setup.

steps: Quit all programs. On the Start menu, 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. If Hatten.ttf is not found, try searching for Haettenschweiler.ttf. Under Name, right-click the hatten.ttf file, then click Rename on the shortcut menu that appears. Change the name of the file to hatten.xxx. If you receive a prompt that states that changing the extension may cause the file to become unusable, click Yes.

Minimize the Find dialog box. On the Start Menu, point to Settings, then click Control Panel. In Control Panel, double-click Add/Remove Programs. Click the Install/Uninstall tab, & select Microsoft Office 97, Professional Edition in the program list. Click Add/Remove to run Office Setup in Maintenance Mode. In the Office 97 Setup dialog box, click Reinstall.

After finished, click the Find dialog box on thetaskbar to maximize it.

Under Name, right-click the hatten.xxx file, and then click Rename on the shortcut menu that appears. Change the name of the file back to hatten.ttf.
