Hi everyone,

Firstly thanks in advance if you able to help me out with my little problem. :huh: :huh:

I guess straight to the point.
Bought a brand new laptop vista installed - I need to run one of my business programs that uses Access.

I have loaded Access 03 version and i when i try to open my program it says it is read only.
Apparently there is a patch to fix this problem( which as i understand is a security problem??)

If you respond thanks a million.

Cheers Bisquett

From this link ( http://uksbsguy.com/blogs/doverton/archive...p-on-vista.aspx )
Try running the setup.exe file as an Administrator. Most common problems of this sort are linked to corrupt media (scratched disk) or a problem with the autorun process.

He's also got info there if you run into the EULA repeating itself every time it launches.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
