Hi
When I try to start MS Access 2007 on a XP computer I get the message
"Can't find language DLL MSAIN.DLL" and access fails to start.
I can open MS Access before my udpate to MS Access 2007 (I was using MS Access 2003).
Would anyone provide me a solution without reinstall the MS office?
Best regards,

Unfortunately, a repair/reinstall would be the solution to proper solution to this. YOu can try locating the EXACT version of msain.dll (and I couldn't tell you exactly which version you need, since that depends on a LOT of different factors), installing that (along with all dependant files, as needed) and then registering it, but you'll end up with an unstable product.

Why would you not wish to reinstall Office? It's a 30 minute fix, in most cases.
