Access 97 references missing when files copied from server

I have inherited a giant access97 'wtf' if you will. The process is standard there is central access db that resides on a server share. Different departments have various standalone access 97 db's that link back to the central one on the server. When changes are made I mode my development copies to a server share and each group has a batch file that copies the modified frontend to their local machines. Up till recently this was always successful, but now it seems the references are changing. All user machines have the same access97 installs.

thanks

Hi,
Still using access 97?
Ok in access after making your modifications, open a module, check that all references are there, recompile your database and then save your modules.
Try then and let me know

jclark33,

Have you noticed anything about the affected machines?  Are they on a different version of windows?  Can you find the missing library reference on their machine?  If so, could it be listed in more than one place on your machine?

Could you copy the library files to the affected machines so everyone has copies of the "missing" files in the same place?

Hi,
I was just kidding :-)
Ok if this library is missing, then what I would suggest is that on a machine causing the problem, uninstall completely Office 97 then reinstall it making sure you select ALL options and try again.

Hi,

Check the version of the missing files and of the file that you have to recheck. Those might be different.
