Couldn't Find c:\windows\system32\system.mdw Message
Loaded Access 97 on my new Vista Machine and got the above message when I
tried to start Access. How do I fix this ?
Vista has more stringent rules about who, and how you can write to the
System32 (or Windows for that matter) folder. If you have another machine
with and unsecured system.mdw file try to copy it to your new one. If it
lets you, you are fine, if not you'll need to work with someone in a Vista
newsgroup to figure out what the problem is.

I have publisher 97 on my windows xp and it works fine. However, I had someone refine some work I had done and apparently they used a later version of Publisher because when I loaded their CD, I got the message "Publisher cannot load files from a different version"
What can I do--does this mean I have to buy a later version to match the version he used, or do I have to buy one of those programs that can open other programs. If I do the later, will I be able to use my 97 version to make changes once I get the files open on the later version

Testing a Sharepoint environment and I can easily manipulate and run the
database from Access 2007, but when I try to use Access 2003 it wants me to
save the database to a location. The Access 2003 has the compatiblity pack,
but it seems to not work when I download it.
So the question is using Sharepoint 2007 and posting the Access 2007 format
to it, can a user go to the sharepoint site and use a 2003 Access database
that has the compatibility pack and open without having to download it?
