Access Application Crash

Hi,

I have access 2013 on this system. When I open an older Access application, I get this error:

You can generally convert most apps up to 2003 , but if you're dealing with an Access 97  app you'll have to first convert it up to 2000, then move up from there.
Since it is a an app that I can't access with out the Exe,
Not sure what you mean by that. Is this an Access application? That is, an app that is written entirely in Access? Or are you working with an Access database only (i.e. only tables)?

I tried that Data Execution, but it told me that Access 2013 can't be excluded.

What version of Access was used for that? If it's pre-2003 you may have issues, and you may need to convert it.

Unfortunately, the error doesn't really give much to go on, but in general when you get a full Access crash the first thing you should do is insure that your Windows and Office installations are fully up to date.

Does the app use any 3rd party controls (that is - anything other than native Access controls like textboxes, combos, etc)?

Can you open the same database on another machine with 2013 installed? How about with Access 2007 or 2010?

you will have to create a new app that does the samething the old app does or install the previous version of office

Well when I open the database it mentions that I need to be in that workgroup as It's protected.

So the database is secured with ULS?

Can you show a screenshot of the error you're getting when you try to open it?
