I use Windows 7 Home Premium. It has had SP1 installed and as of today Windows Update advises the system is up to date.
The problem I have is with an Access 2007 database. It is in a folder and I have a shortcut to it on the desktop. When I open it by launching Access and then open it using File/Open, all is well and the database does indeed open.
However, when I attempt to open it either by clicking on its icon or its shortcut, I get the error message saying that I need to purchase Office 2010 in order to open it; in addition both the icon and shortcut image has changed (2 shades of orange). This has only started to happen in the last week – before that all was well.
Any ideas please?
