    Access 97 with Office 2002 XP (97 & 2002)

    I need to install Access 97 on my Windows XP Professional machine along with the rest of Office 2002. I have tried uninstalling the Office 2002 and then installing the Access 97, but even though it is a legitimate copy, I always get the message "No license for this program exists" so it will not run.
    I assume there is some registry key leftover from the office 2002 causing this problem, since I've managed to get this to work on a different machine that I reformatted before installing Access 97 and then Office 2002. I've tried deleting every registry key with 'MSaccess' in the key with no office programs installed, then installing Access 97, to no effect.

    Anybody know of a solution to this problem without reformatting and reinstalling everything on the system?

    It's a trick solution! Rename the file named HATTEN.TTF to something different. Install Access 97. Rename the file back to HATTEN.TTF
