i Experts,

I have been running Office Enterprise 2007 for many years without a problem (on Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1 with Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 SP1).

Today when I attempted to run Access 2007, I got these dialogs:

"Configuring Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007" (with a progress bar).

On completion, I get this message:

"Automatic Configuration of the current version of Microsoft Office Access has failed.
Your database might not function correctly.
This can occur if you do not have the necessary permissions to install Microsoft Office Access on this computer."

I am logged in as Administrator.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Regards,
Leigh

Start-->Control Panel-->Programs and Features--> Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007; right click and select Change
Select Add or Remove Features under Installation Options tab and see the choices you have available for Access; hit Continue to let it run and see the result

Do you have access to the original installation - eventually to try a Repair?

Ask your IT dep't on licensing issues?
