I think the title says it all... I'm getting this error in WinNT, could it be NTFS? I have SP3 installed.
MS Access didn't start either, exited with the same error message. There has got to be a solution to this! Anyone??

snoffy, most likely it is the NTFS. I have had many problems using DB applications with NTFS. They were solved using FAT.

Do you have any data suited on the network (DB or installation files)?

Thanks. Now I can stop wondering... damn, 'format c:' again =(

...cause it's not possible to convert NTFS to FAT huh? Just the other way around.

Yep, switched back to win95 =( and now it works as usual. But I don't have the guts to install IE4... it has already crashed win95 twice!

NEVER try to install IE4 on WIN95 if you like a helthy windows.
