running w2k have a problem with access97

By techster3000 ·
The system is running wk2, it has office 2000 standard. Using access97 because of our database. The problem is that access97 tries to reload itself everytime. What can I do in order for access97 not to try and install itself everytime. Have already del the entire office2k and reloaded it.

running w2k have a problem with access97

Do you have Windows 2000 professional that has Access components running? If so just convert your 97 applications into 2000 - they convert well for the most part. Nothing lost as you just rename the converted database so still have your original. The short time I ran both 2000 and 97 on my system I installed Access 97 first then installed each 2000 program separately rather than the entire suite. Hope that helps.
