    Error accessing registry (Access2k, WinXP (home))

    Hi All,
    (at home) When I go to <Tools> <References> from the Visual Basic editor while coding in Access2k I get the following error message:

    MICROSOFT VISUAL BASIC
    Error accessing the system registry

    Help wasn't any. I've completely removed and reinstalled Office2k SR1a (haven't done SP2 or whatever it is) which hasn't changed anything. Does anybody please have any ideas on what I can/should do?

    It's just a guess, but perhaps it's a privileges issue. Does XP Home differentiate between users and administrators like 2000? If so, will the dialog populate when you are logged in as an administrator?

    {Later...after searching at MS}

    Try this fix: <A target="_blank" HREF=http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-GB;q296108>PRB: Various Issues in Visual Studio Programs on Windows NT-Based Systems (Q296108)</A> (see the heading "Visual Basic Program Use").
