APPLIES TO

  • Microsoft Office 2000 Developer Edition
  • Microsoft Access 2000 Standard Edition



This article was previously published under Q252741

Novice: Requires knowledge of the user interface on single-user computers.

This article applies to a Microsoft Access database (.mdb) and to a Microsoft Access project (.adp).


SYMPTOMS

When you install the Microsoft Access 2000 Run-Time component on a computer, you see a screen titled Ready to Install. This screen shows the default installation location as follows:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\


The following behavior may occur, depending on which installation option you select.

Scenario 1

If you choose to install to the indicated location by clicking Install Now, the Access 2000 Run-Time component, MsAccess.exe, is installed instead to:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\ART\Office


In this case, even though the stated installation location and the actual installation location are different, the Access 2000 Run-Time component should function correctly. In addition, if Access 97 or the Access 97 Run-Time component has been installed previously, it should also function correctly.

Scenario 2

If you choose Customize, the default installation location is shown as follows:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\


If you accept that path and continue with Setup by clicking OK, and then Install Now, the Run-Time component is actually installed to the following location:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office


In this case, if you had installed Microsoft Access 97 or the Access 97 Run-Time component to its default location (C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office), Access 97 will be overwritten and will no longer work. When you try to start Access 97, you may see one of the following error messages:

The Dynamic Link Library MSO9.DLL Could Not Be Located

-or-


Can't find the database you specified, or you did not specify a database at all.
Specify a valid database name in the command line, and include a path if necessary.

RESOLUTION

To resolve this problem, obtain the Microsoft Office 2000 Developer Service Release 1 (MOD SR-1) Fulfillment CD.

NOTE: You cannot correct this problem by downloading and installing the MOD SR-1 Update because it does not include the Access Run-Time SR-1 files.

For additional information about how to obtain the Microsoft Office 2000 Developer Service Release 1 (MOD SR-1) Fulfillment CD, click the article number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

253566 MOD2000: How to Obtain and Install Microsoft Office 2000 Developer Service Release 1 (SR-1)


To work around this behavior, make sure that you either avoid clicking the Customize button, or, if you do, make sure to set the path for the installation location to a folder that does not contain another version of Access.

If Access 97 has been overwritten by the Access 2000 Run-Time component, you must remove the Access 2000 run-time application, and then reinstall Access 97.

To repair the installation of Access 97, please see the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article. This problem was corrected in Microsoft Office 2000 Developer SR-1.
