I have a MS database that i created in 2007.We moved to using a virtual desktop recently and i started developing my database using access 2010. Everything seemd to be working fine until last week when i started experiencing App Crashes constantly when i try to do anything. I performed a compact and repair but this didnt resolve the issue. I even tried to import my database into a new one but it crashed.

Please see screenshots for error message

Any ideas?

Kind regards

 It's not clear if your switching back and forth between 2007 and 2010.  If so, do not.  I'd also go a step further if 2007 and 2010 are both in use and keep two different versions.

  I'd also head out to Office Update and make sure your up to date on service packs.

 Finially, I'd create a new DB in 2o10 and do another import of everything.

You might try to do a Decompile as well, create a shortcut like this and execute it:
<path_to>msaccess.exe <path_to>your.accdb /decompile
