    Unanswered: Access97 and XP compatibility

    Can someone give me information on what problems there are in upgrading to XP and still using access 97? I have some test machines running XP and some of our programs in Access 97 are not running. I have noticed that our old machines have comdlg32.ocx registered as an active X component . The new XP machines with Access 97 installed do not have this activeX component installed and when I copy the file and try to register it -it will not. What do I need to do at this point?

    You might try getting your hands on a copy of the Developer's Edition of Access 97. It should be pretty cheap these days. For sure this version has that Activex Control and it allows you to distribute it.
