    Access hangs (XP)

    Running Office XP on XPPro It seems like access will stop responding while I'm creating new objucts or doing mods. Has anyone else experienced this. It works fine on my 98SE machine but not on the XP laptop. It is almost like it is backing up or something like that. Any Help appreciated

    Ed - when you say 'stops responding', how do you mean that?

    Is your database split?

    My boss has run into that problem on XPPro, but so far we only have one development machine with that configuration so I can't give you any suggestions. Have you applied SP1 to Office?

    Peter,
    I perform an an action like switching to design view on a form and it will freeze. An additional Access item will show up in the task bar saying "Access 'Objectname' [Not Responding]. It is driving me nuts. I did apply SP1 but it didn't help. I have also nukes Office and reinstalled.

    It shouldn't be split. But I don't really know what that means.

    Charlotte,
    I did apply SP1 and I tried Reinstall. If you do hear anything let me know

    I am still clueless, but suggest:

    Make sure Acc is running alone. Close down all other applications, esp Outlook, and give it a try.

    if the objectname Access is looking for is another office app, make sure that app will answer the call (operate as a server.).

    Re: Access hangs (XP)

    Peter,
    I'm stumped too. You would figure that Office XP would work better with WinXP than 98SE. I smell a rat and I'm sure they will have a patch in a few months Esp since someone else posted that they are having a similar problem with XPPro. Thanks for the advice.
