when open access 97 "microsoft access can't display the add-ins submenu & add-in manager because a setting you entered in the windows registry is missing a macroname or functionname expression" error message comes. This happens after registry cleaner. I have already installed Sp1 & Sp2. But still error message comes.

Access 97?

What Operating system are you running?

Please remember that Access 97 is over 10 years old.
Many Operating system files are shared with MS Office.
Many of these Operating system files are designed to run with the current versions of the products.

There is no guarrantee that Access 97 will run smoothly in Windows XP or Vista.

Can you please state this is a new, or ongoing issue?

We are using Windows XP. It was working fine before running registry cleaner. It is a new problem.

Does this Registry Cleaner have a "RollBack" utility, as most of them do.?

If so, then roll it back to the last good configuration.

This could be caused by one of the registry settings for your Microsoft Access add-in being invalid. This could be a library file that doesn't exist or the expression doesn't exist, or the library doesn't compile.  Hope this helps.
