Error Opening Database

I have an ACCDE version of my database (Access 2010), when I try to open it on a Windows XP box, I get a pop up that says "You can not edit the control...", then after clicking ok, it says there is not enough memory ...


Is this a standard type message?  the Database used to open on the XP Box no problem.

Check to see if there is code behind any event, that tries to modify an object.
Database allows edits to objects.

An object being a control on a form right?

Just clarifying -

<< I try to open it on a Windows XP box, I get a pop up that says... >>

Does the same ACCDE work on other computers, under other versions of Windows or does it fail on all computers?

Access Runtime specifically will not allow design changes to your database.  So property settings that can be changed in Form View will not cause problems, but property settings that require your form or report to be in Design View will cause errors.

What code do you have in the Open, Current or Load events of your startup form?

it works on all other XP boxes but this one specifically.  the ACCDE runs on all the other XP Boxes no problem.   Is a ACCDE a run time version  I thought it was just the compiled version of the db.

Sorry, I was assuming runtime incorrectly.

Is it a specific copy of your database that fails or have you tested known good copies to rule out corruption?

I've tried multiple versions of the db. Ones that run fine on other machines.
