Bugs: License problems

Author(s)
Dev Ashish

(Q)  I'm receiving the error message "Microsoft Access can't start because there is no license for it on this machine."  I've tried re-installing but it doesn't solve the problem.  How can I fix this?

(A)    Most of the times, this error message comes up when Access did not register properly during the install process.

    As a part of the setup, the following entries are created in the registry.

(For Access 97): \\HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Licenses\8CC49940-3146-11CF-97A1-00AA00424A9F
(For Access 95): \\HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Licenses\B54DCF20-5F9C-101B-AF4E-00AA003F0F07

    If the entries are not present or are corrupted, this error message will come up.

    To fix the problem, re-run the setup with a /y switch. 
        Setup /y

    Under Windows 98, this problem can come up due to the installation of Microsoft Publisher 97.  For details, check out the knowledge base article and download the tool.
