Cannot copy and paste with right click in MS Access 2000

I previously was able to copy and paste with right click in two different MS Access 2000 applications (they are both front ends).  Now, after installing a packaged MS access 2007 application I cannot use the right click copy and past.  Is this a dll issue?  Thanks in advance.

Have you installed the full version or runtime? Are you running the full version with the /runtime flag? Are Remote Desktop sessions active?

for some reason, right click menus are disabled in the runtime edition.  If you distributed a run-time application you will not have right click menus unless you develop explicit code to call those menus.

Thank you, that is good to know.  However, she opens her full version of access and runs the application that is not a run-time version (it is a .mdb).  It just started to happen after I installed a different application on her pc (that application is a run-time version)

That 2007 runtime application may be causing problems with the 2000 application.  Have you tried opening Access 2000 on her computer, then opening the application where the right click is not working?

if that works, then create a shortcut for her desktop that opens the mdb but which includes the path for the 2000 version of Access.

Yes, I believe the 2007 runtime application may be causing problems with the 2000 application.  The only way she can run her .mdb is by opening Access 2000 first on her computer.  Right click is still not working. I am not sure what to do next.  I tried recompiling her .mdb thinking that was the issue.

Yup. The last run access normally sets itself as starting application.

I'm using always a batches to start the databases on the clients. Using the path to the installed Access version.
