Warning Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly by using Registry Editor or by using another method. These problems might require that you reinstall the operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that these problems can be solved. Modify the registry at your own risk.
- To open the Registry Editor, click the Start button and type “regedit.exe” (without the quotation marks) and press the ENTER key. If you see the User Account Control dialog box appear, click Continue.
- On the left side, expand the tree structure until you find the registry key that starts with "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\COMPONENTS\Winners\x86_policy.9.0.microsoft.vc90.crt_".
- Expand the key above.
- Below that key, you should see a 9.0 key. Select the 9.0 registry key.
- In the right pane, make note of the number you see in the Data column for the row where the Name is set to (Default), in case you need to revert to this number later.
- Look through the list of numbers in the Name column and find the highest number.
- Double-click the (Default) string value to open the Edit String dialog box.
- Replace the number in the "Value data" box with the highest number you saw in step #6. Click OK.
- On the File menu, click Exit to close the Registry Editor.
- After completing step #8 the issue may be resolved. If you continue to see the same problem restart the computer. You may also need to follow the steps below to correct the file association error message.
10. Locate the Access executable file (msaccess.exe). By default, on a 32-bit version of Windows this is located in "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\ folder. On a 64-bit version of Windows this is located in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14\ folder.
11. Rename msaccess.exe to msaccess.old.
12. Start the installer to create a version of msaccess.exe. To do this, start Access using the Start Button, All Programs, Microsoft Office, Microsoft Access 2010.
Other versions of Windows
This problem is typically reported for computers running Vista. If you encounter the error message within a different Windows environment, you can use the same steps listed in the Windows Vista section. The only difference is the registry key path listed in step number 2 may be different. On other versions of Windows, the key path will start with "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\SideBySide\Winners\x86_policy.9.0.microsoft.vc90.crt_".
Microsoft Office Access 2007
If you encounter the error message with Microsoft Office Access 2007, it will related to the 2005 version of the C run-time libraries. The version numbers of these libraries start with 8.0. You can still use the steps listed in the Windows Vista section; however, there will be two differences:
- In step number 2, the registry path will have x86_policy.8.0.microsoft.vc80.crt instead of x86_policy.9.0.microsoft.vc90.crt.
- In step number 3, you will need to select the 8.0 registry key.
- Click the Start button and then click Control Panel.
- Click System and Maintenance.
- Click Administrative Tools.
- Double-click Event Viewer.
- In the Console Tree on the left side, expand Windows Logs, and then click Application.
