Win2000 Professional, NT4 Server and MS Access97

Environment:
The MS Access 97 application resides on the NT4 Server.  
The Work Station is Windows 2000 professional with Service Pack 2 installed.

When the Windows 2000 Work Station accesses the Access 97 application (on the NT4 server) in report mode, I receive the following error message:   ? The instruction at "0x77fcb2b9 referenced memory at "0x50651a03". The memory could not be "written". ?

After the installation of the Office 97 Service Pack 2 ? the same error message still occurs.

When I run the MS Access 97 application in the NT4 native mode  or  in the Windows 2000 native mode, the error seems to go away.  It is not feasible for me to upgrade the NT4 Server at this time.

Does anyone have any suggestions on what approach I should take?
Thanks in advance!

There's four suggested solutions to this problem from Microsoft.

One is to run in naitive mode, which your are currently doing.

The second is to upgrade Access 97 to Access 2000 as it contains the appropriate fix.

The third is to reapply service pack 6 to the server.

The fourth is to upgrade the server to 2000.

What you may also want to try in the Windows 2000 Compatibility Update. This will help sort some of these issues as well. You'll find it at the Windows 2000 home page.
