I have an access database that needs to run on MS Access 2000 and when I run it I get the following message "Required registry information is missing and this application cannot run. Please rerun setup to correct this problem." I have tried article https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/236590 with no luck, I can't find the registry entry appointment in the article. I'm running Windows 7 Pro x64, any help will be well appreciated. Thank you.

Search the registry for "Microsoft Office", you should be able to find the key mentioned in the kb article.

I suspect that you have 64-bit Windows 7 ...It seems that Office 2000 installs fine on Win 7 32bit...but on x64 (?) maybe you have leftovers from a trial Office installation that is blocking your Office 2K from running

I've made a search for ProductID and was able to find the entry on a different location. So, I've renamed it to old, opened Access entered the serial key when asked, closed Access and ran a repair install. It is now working perfect.
