I think you mean Third-party software.

What is the error you are having installing Office 97?

Chances are low that you will find such a program. The Office XP installer not only installs Office as such, but also updates some system components. I suppose that these may be incompatible, so that it is not really an uninstall issue.

all the Office 97 programs open ok except the access - the massege that pops-up says something like - "U do not have a licence for access on this computer"
i know that a program like the one i am searching for exists for office 2000.

Then possibly you are not speaking of a third-party software, but an additional utility from Microsoft.

Although, with that specific error, I'm thinking that someone will pop in with a solution. I'm fairly familiar with that error myself. I will look into both a fix or utility. I fairly certain that one exists also.

Thanks

I've had that problem before to - I ended up reformatting and reinstalling windows then the office - Not that that is the only solution - but it was faster for me since I had a clean drive image done with all the drivers.

Rick
