    Accessless (Office 97 Pro (!))

    I've been running Windows XP Pro for about 4 months. I finally got around to using Access today - and I can't! I'm getting an "Out of Memory 'message when I try to start Access. But I have 1 GB of memory and CPU usage is around 4%. Something is very wrong. Also recently Word keeps asking me if I want to make changes to the Global Default Template. I worry about a virus but I've updated my anti-virus software and run a complete system check. Can anyone please advise?

    Re: Accessless (Office 97 Pro (!))

    Your problem is, you have TOO MUCH memory for Access 97, or more specifically, for the Jet 3.5 database engine. To fix problem, either use less RAM, or, better option, upgrade to Jet 3.51. For details see MSKB Article Q161255:

    ACC: "Out of Memory" Error Starting Microsoft Access

    Re Access now 97 Service Packs!

    Thanks Mark.

    I checked the link you posted and I've discovered that I need to install Jet35sp3.exe. But to do this I need Office 97 Service Pack 2 and before that Service Pack 1. It looks like I have no choice if I want to use Access with my XP system but before I install these packs does anyone know if there are any issues I should be aware of - especially concerning security and/or privacy?

    There are no issues to worry about before installing those Service Releases.
