We are attempting to install and run a MSAccess program compiled with Access 97 Runtime on our 2003 Server.

The program installs without error.  However when we attempt to run the application we get a message in the Event Viewer:
Faulting application Msaccess.exe, version 8.0.0.5903, faulting module unknown, version 0.0.0.0, fault address 0x0022c3a8.

Any ideas?

Both posts eventually led us to documentation that stated that the MSAccess 97 Runtime is not compatible with Windows 2003 Servers.
Thanks for the assistance
