Microsoft Office 2000 Pro

Microsoft Office 2000 Pro

Microsoft Office 2000 Pro

Successfully installed Office 2000 Pro, all programs load fine except Access.  System Error message opens stating too many programs loaded (I've eliminated everything else), and then the "illegal operation" notice comes up stating msaccess caused an invalid page fault.  I've reloaded Office and even tried opening Access while in safe mode with still the same results.

RE: Microsoft Office 2000 Pro

Can you give more detail about the error message? Does it give any error numbers or modules that are having the problem??  The exact message may be useful.

RE: Microsoft Office 2000 Pro

I did not receive any other error messages other then what I originally posted.  I did suceed in loading Access by running the program directly from the CD.  My computer is loading several other small "foot-print" programs which shouldn't cause these error messages.  By the way, thanks for your interest LadyH.

RE: Microsoft Office 2000 Pro

I guess I should have thought of these earlier...which OS and was this a clean install or an upgrade.  I recieved some information earlier today about Office 2000 problems if the install was done over a beta version.  The problem the article reported was office applications quitting as soon as the application was launched with no error message.  Heck, I'll try to post the article and see if it is any help (if it isn't too big)  The article is from TechRepublic:

Programs quit immediately
 after starting

 You're getting complaints from users about Office 2000
 programs that quit immediately after they're started—with no
 error message! What's the problem?

 There can be a couple of reasons for this. To begin with, you
 may have installed the release version of Office 2000 over the
 beta version without uninstalling the beta version first.

 The other possible cause is that the ProductID string value in
 the registry is blank. To resolve this, follow these steps:

   1.In your Registry Editor, find the key


   2.Look for a subkey that's a 32-bit GUID (it should be
      listed at the top of the list). If there are several, click on
      each one and look at the value of the DisplayName key
      to find the one that corresponds to Office 2000.
   3.When you've found the right subkey, select the
      ProductID string and rename it something like "OldID".

 Now exit the Registry Editor and start any of the Office
 programs. You should be presented with an Office 2000 User
 Information dialog box, which will allow you to type in the
 Product ID number from your CD.

 Note: As always, use caution when editing the registry. Always
 have a verified backup before you begin.

RE: Microsoft Office 2000 Pro

Thanks once again LadyH.  My Office was loaded over win98.  In the begining I had loaded 2000 over 97.  When this didn't work, I uninstalled everything and started from sratch with still the same results.  I'm going to look into what you suggested.  It makes sense.  Thanks!
