I'm trying to download a fantasy baseball draft kit. I'm running windows7 with explorer7. I do all of the steps in the download when I try to open the program I get this message: "Unrecognized database format C:\ProgramData\insiderbaseball2012\custombdb.mdb: -- Error number: 3343". I did contact the site that I downloaded from, they told me that it is on my end. Could it be something with my norton? Could it be a firewall? It's almost like only some of the program downloads. Any help would be great.... Thanks

If you are trying to open the .mdb file then it's your machines setup and you need to have Access installed.

If you are trying to open an .exe file that runs a program that accesses an Access database (the .mdb file) then try downloading the file again. If the error persists, you'll need to contact the makers of the .exe file for support.

That's an old Jet database engine error.
Is it an old program? If not, on Windows 7 I would attribute that to a corrupt database file (the .mdb file).
If it is old, it probably will not run on Windows 7 without some significant modifications to your system's database drivers.
