MS Access update -- not

By brifd1 ·
Had an MSA '97 database that I converted to MSA 2002. The MSA installation is on a network. I can open up the db, but my colleague cannot. So, she has to use my PC to open it. Not the most convenient. I tried to update her MSA, but we get an error message about there needing to be a PRO.MSI file, which my understanding is from an Enterprise edition of MSA. However, we don't know where that copy went. I tried to uninstall that version of MSO and reinstall a "regular" MSO, but we get the same error message when I try to update it, and the same error message. What can we do???

with Access 97 there are artifacts left in the regestry and on the drive after you remove it. First, uninstall access. Then you go out to Microsoft's site and download "Eraser97", which will remove the artifacts left behind. You should then be able to reinstall the version you have and configure it properly.

Hmmm, I should've been more specific. The database is in MSA '97. My co-worker has MSA 2002 installed, evidently an Enterprise edition. Do I follow the same/a similar course to remove the Enterprise edition, then replace it with a "regular" edition?
