Windows 7: Can't open file because its already running 2003 Access

Both "Open Exclusive" or "Open Exclusive Read-Only" both open, I've use Open Exclusive if I want to set a password.

I never use Read-Only as I always modify the database. As I've said this problem only happens when I copy the database from Windows XP back to my Windows 7 laptop. I have to restart the laptop before it will open.

Have you tried to run it in XP Compatibility Mode on your Windows 7 laptop. It seems from what you have said that the Win 7 laptop is not recognising the data.

Do you have Office 2003 installed on both computers, if so, do they have separate Office licenses.

What method are you using for copying the Access data from one to the other. Do you use an update query or do you just append the copied data directly to the main table.

I copy and paste the database over from Windows XP to my Windows 7 laptop.

I check all Windows updates daily.

I copy and paste into Google just to check what its about. I also have https://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/home.aspx to check any KB number updates.

I've uninstalled a couple of updates and done a restart.

Security Update for Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack Service Pack 3 (KB3178682) Installation date: 15/03/2017 16:40 uninstalled

Security Update for Microsoft Office 2007 suites (KB3127945) Installation date: 15/03/2017 16:39 uninstalled

I check Windows updates history and it still shows.

Even though it doesn't show in Control Panel Installed Updates.

I copy every Windows update into a text file for quick reference. The stupid thing is it pastes the date info has

Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool - February 2017 (KB890830) Installation date: ?23/?02/?2017 12:55. Why the hell does it put a ? in front of each part of the date?

Okay well I'm pretty much out of ideas. Those updates show in windows update history because history shows when you installed updates - not when you uninstalled them. They updates should not show up in the installed updates list which is different to history list.

RE: Copying database. Did you copy the .mdb file or perhaps an entire folder containing the file?

I copy just the file over not the complete folder.

I had Windows updates popup today after I uninstalled them yesterday.

I've had File Format Converters DOCX-DOC for years just in case I need to open a docx file.
