We have a couple of databases in Office 2003 that are mdb and have logins that are controlled by the access security feature. When I attempt to open them in 2007 I get an error that states:
Error:
The operating system is not presently configured to run this application.

Any ideas?

Maybe try running the Diagnostics within Access 2007 to see if there are any issues with its installation:
Click the Microsoft Office Button
 click Access Options
 click the Resources option
 click the Diagnose button
 click the Continue button
 click Start Diagnostics

Are you running Access on Windows Vista?

Our Workstations have XP

The Access databases work with Access 2003

They just won't open in Access 2007

I ran Diags and still no luck. I guess I will see if we disable the security and try to reenable in access 2007 if that works, The only problem there is I will have to upgrade all my users at once.
