Database built in Access 2007, won't open in 2010

I have a database that I built in Access 2007.   When opened in 2010, it appears to open ok, (goes to mainmenu), but all forms except one will not open.  Shows in Taskmgr to be running, but for all practical appearances it is locked up.  

One more bit of information.    I just figured out that all of the forms that didn't open (they seemed to lock the program up) had the POPUP and MODAL properties set to YES.    

These are also set this way in the 2007 version and it works.  Can anyone point me to why this isn't working in 2010?

I've tried moving the MSACC.OLB file from 2007 to the 2010 install, but that didn't work.   I've also added the folder as a TRUSTED LOCATION.

Why?
Make sure you return your system to it's original state...

To be sure Open the dB in Access 2007 and run the compact/repair utility.
Then create a new blank, Access 2007 format db and import all the objects.
Then open this new DB in access 2010 and see what happens.

Do you have any activeX controls on the form that's not opening?
Experts Exchange is like having an extremely knowledgeable team sitting and waiting for your call. Couldn't do my job half as well as I do without it!

That is what it was.   For some reason 2010 was handling multiple monitors differently, and the forms were simply opening off screen.  


Thanks!!
