I followed a previous question for opening a 2010 in 2007 but no luck.

I updated my computer to the latest Windows 7 updates (including some for Access) but I still get this when I open the DB:

Unrecognized database format 'C:\...accdb'.

How do I identify the Access 2010 features referred to in the help file here?
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/office/cc907897.aspx

And does this mean I need Access 2010 to save a file in 2007 format so I can use it on my 2007 installation?  This is crazy!

Further, when I try to import into a blank 2007 DB, I get the same message when I select the DB.
(Maybe my updates didn't include SP2?  I forget how to check this.)

Can I open the DB in VB.Net the recreate it from there maybe?
