This morning discovered that not able to launch any ms office97 applications.
Remove ms office 97 successfully & after that install ms office 97 again using installation CD.
All ms office applications works fine except Access97. When I click the icon, error msg says: "This application must be installed to run.Please run setup from the location where you originally installed the application."

I reinstalled ms office 97 again & after that remove ms office97. After sucessfully removed ms office97, I install MS Office97 again. All ms office applications works fine but it still gave me the same error msg when I clicked the Access Icon.

My computer operating system is Windows 2000

Please help!

I ran into this error when I had Access XP and Access 97 on the same system.  All I needed to do was to open access 97 as an administrator.  Are you running as a local administrator on your system?

And the OS was W2K also.

Note: once you open as an adminitrator, you can open as a user from then on.
