"Microsoft Access" 2002 Runtime gives message "Cant open any more tables" RRS feed

    Hi

    We have a Windows 7 Pro machine with Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2007 installed - without the "Microsoft Access 2007" component.

    When we install a "Microsoft Access 2002" runtime which is required for an application, the Application displays the message "Cannot open any more tables" when logging in to the application.

    We have uninstalled Office Pro Plus 2007 and the Access 2002 runtime and reinstalled again but still get the same message.

    We uninstalled both and only installed the "Microsoft Access 2002 Runtime" ONLY and still get the same message.

    The application works successfully on all other machines that have Windows 7, and Microsoft Office Professional 2007.

    Is this a problem with the Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2007 edition?

    Should we rather install Microsoft Office Professional 2007 on this specific machine?

    Do we repair/reinstall Windows 7 on the machine?

  • Office XP (2002) is not supported on Windows 7 so there is no way get get it fully working. If it work, ok, if not MS doesn't help you.

    Use the XP Mode to run the old application. Install KB958559 (VirtualPC) first , next the Update KB977206 or the Windows 7 Sp1 to remove the VT requirement (if your CPU doesn't support hardware VT) and in the 3rd step install the XPMode VHD (WindowsXPMode_en-us.exe).

    Download the XPMode VHD from here:

    and run Access 2002 in the XP Mode.

  • HI

    Re-installing the Windows 7 OS and reloading our application resolved the issue.
