Opening Access 97 mdb file with Windows 2000

 Opening Access 97 mdb file with Windows 2000

Access 97 was loaded from MS cd on machine with w2000 os.  
It worked correctly for a long time but then stopped
opening the mdb file.  Mdb files with just tables open
correctly but when I open the front file that has the
forms, quearys and other functions,  the front file never
opens and I get the message:

"<process has already exited> has generated errors and
will be closed by Windows.  You will need to restart the

I suspect errors in the registry but don't know what way
to go.  Uninstalling and re-installing Access doesn't help.

Trouble started with the "Run-time error '429', ActiveX
component can't creat object" message but has gone to this

The mdb file can be opened by other machines on the
network and if I access the same mdb file on other network
machines, using this machine with os2000, I get the
same "process has already closed" message.

DAO3.51 is used(at least in the mdb file).

Thanks for any help.
