    [SOLVED} 2010 runtime fails on updated (7) computer

    I have a very large access database running on a mixed bag of machines for many years. Last year Office was updated to 2010 with one machine getting a full version and the others the standard with an access runtime. This worked well until last week when the XP stragglers were updated to Win 7. Now one updated machine will not run the database. It just displays a message that there was a runtime error and it's closing. No indication of what the error is. I've checked the reference files and they are all the correct version and I used another little database which required the same support and it runs fine.

    I cannot duplicate the error on any other of the runtime machines nor can I get it on my computer running with the /runtime switch.

    Suggestions as to where and/or how to start looking will be greatly appreciated.

    SOLVED runtime error

    The boffins who supply the equipment sent over a trainee in the update crew, an UNTRAINED trainee. The network logon wasn't set up properly and the database identified the user by the logon.
    btw not brilliant detective work, just installing a full version of Access.
