Access 97 - runing an application causes blank message with exclamation point
Posted on 2002-03-07
When clicking on a Access 97 database application, a blank error message box with an exclamation point appears. Clicking OK takes you to the application BUT the buttons do not function.
Please note the following:
- OS: Windows 2000 with Office 2000 (Access 2000 disabled);
- The problem occurs *only* on this computer and it appears to occur with *all* Access 97 database applications;
The database apps initially worked [on this computer] until Office 2000 decided that Access 2000 should become primary over Access 97 (just on its own after a boot up). I then removed Access 2000 entirely which than set off a chain of events that led me to entering this query here on EE.
Additionally, I've notice that when starting the add in manager, the error "error in loading dll" appears. However, I'm not sure if this is related.
200 bonus points if this question is answered by tomorrow (Friday) - or suggestion is given leading to a solution. No! Re-installing Windows 2000 is NOT a solution!
