problem installing ms office professional

problem installing ms office professional

My pc came with ms office97 for small business.  I am trying to install ms office professional so I can use access.  Everything
seems to install ok but when I try to run access I get the message that I do not have
the correct licencse for access. Any thoughts?

RE: problem installing ms office professional

Uninstall both small business and professional. Reinstall professional.


RE: problem installing ms office professional

I have already tried uninstalling both MS ofice for sm business and MS
office prof.  Still have same problem.

RE: problem installing ms office professional

In between installs, (that's the way it goes, isn't it)...after an uninstall...I'd dig into the Registry and delete all keys referring to the apps except the ones in the legacy definitions.  There's something (obviously) left behind from the unistall that's contradictory to the new license information.  Maybe a further registry sweep with regclean.exe (downloadable freebie from MS)would help, too.

Here are several good resources to review if you are about to upgrade to Access 2000 or have done and are having license or compile problems:

RE: problem installing ms office professional

I a somewhat a novice at installing Microsoft Office. I have
this problem: I followed instructions on reinstalling after a problem that someone repairing my computer reformatted my hard drive. I had most files back-up but that is not my present problem
I would like to go to Microsoft Explorer and locate my Word and Excel under the Microsoft folder, but they are not there. I cannot find them in the Office folder. How can I get them into the office folder. I want to go to Explorer and see the various drives. If I want to copy a file from drive to another, I want to drag and drop it into the correct folder. HOW DO I SET THAT UP? PLEASE BE SIMPLY SPECIFIC. THANKS.
