access application read only??

I developed a simple access application, I want use it on multiple machines. when I try and use it on a identical machine using runtime 2010 the app opens but does not allow the user to change any of the information (input Box). Funny thing I tried this on my laptop and had no problems. The directory is not set to read only. This machine did have a demo copy of ms office pro that has expired?? using windows 7 pro 64 bit however ms office is 32 bit
Thanks

Also be sure that the folder location where the database was installed is listed as a Trusted Location. You can do this in several ways - here's an EE article that shows you how:

How did you get the database from one machine to the other.  If via CD, you should check the properties of the file itself, they will probably be set to "read only".

The expired copy of Office could be interfering.  You will need to remove it completely (not easy).   Then reinstall the runtime.

Advice from the twice burned, NEVER install evaluation copies of software on PCs where you actually need to do work.  Getting rid of them can be problematic and may involve a Format C:.
