When you install Microsoft Access database 1.1 upgrade on a system running Windows NT version 3.1 that had previously been running Windows for Workgroups, you may receive the following error message:

The version of Windows for Workgroups you are using must be upgraded before Access can be installed.


Microsoft Access requires an updated WFWNET.DRV file when it runs with Windows for Workgroups. An updated driver is shipped with the product and is on the last disk.


To resolve this problem, rename or remove the file WFWNET.DRV in the SYSTEM subdirectory. It is not required when Microsoft Access runs under Window NT. However, if you are dual-booting to Windows for Workgroups, you need to run the update from the last Microsoft Access disk.
