Windows 7: Microsoft Data Access Error

06 Nov 2011   #1

Microsoft Windows 7 Professional x64 SP1 Build 7601
Microsoft Data Access Error

I tried installing a trial version of Living Cookbook on my desktop computer and it would not run. The following errors popped up. I installed the same program on my Laptop with the same windows 7 64bit configuration as my desktop and it ran fine. The only difference between the 2 computers is the laptop has Windows 7 home premium and my desktop has Windows 7 professional. Both computers have been fully updated with the latest Microsoft updates and are Malware and virus free. I don't know why the desktop is giving me this error when the laptop works fine. I have tried running this in Administrator mode, in window xp compatible mode all with same results. It ran with no configurations on my laptop.
I Googled MDAC 2.6 and all versions seem to be for XP systems. Again what ever is on my laptop doesn’t seem to be on my desktop.
I believe this is a System problem not a software problem, so I am posting this to see if any of you Great Windows 7 Gurus have any suggestion?

Microsoft Windows 7 Professional x64 SP1 Build 7601

This was a little over my head. Is windows server 2008 already installed on my Window 7 computers and somehow got messed up on my desktop but not my laptop? Do I just install IIS7 for windows vista and win 7 to fix this? When I get back to my desktop computer do I search for IIS7 as a file or search for it in Regedit?

I am starting to wonder if I should just reinstall my OS, but to have to go though all the headaches of getting my applications configured scares me to death.

Microsoft Windows 7 Professional x64 SP1 Build 7601

The final solution to all my software installation issues was to restore my Windows 7 back to its (OEM) original state. Once I did this, all the problems I had experienced with many of my software programs, including Living Cookbook, went away. I really think my problem occurred by multitasking and/or multi-installing software all at once. OR.. I wasn't paying close enough attention to the software questions that were popping up. On my "clean install", I installed each program one at at time and before anything I would reboot and run that software just to see that it worked, then I would go one to the next program. This was time consuming, but everything installed perfectly and its been months without any glitches or malfunctions. I really resented having to restore my system back to factory OEM, but now that the aggravation and headaches are gone, I am finally very happy with Windows 7. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the reply, that's the conclusion I have come too. Fortunately I have a system backup so I don't need to do an OEM install. Thanks again.
