Installing Visio 2000 on Win 7 broke Access 2003

    Question

  • Had Ms-Access 2003 working great for weeks.  

    Then installed Visio 2000 to flowchart some things.

    Now Ms-Access 2003 doesn't work.

    The error message says: Microsoft Office has stopped working.
    A problem caused the program to stop working correctly.  
    Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution
    is available.

    Then it says:  There was a problem sending the command to
    the program.

    I noticed when Visio 2000 was installing, it changed a number
    of things including the DAO 3.6 VBA reference.

    How to I recover from this problem ?

    Thanks.  Ed. . .

  • You should never install (a program from) an older Office version after a newer one.

    Uninstall both Access 2003 (or Office 2003 if you have the complete suite) and Visio 2000.

    Reinstall Visio 2000 first, then Access 2003.
