    Why do I get the massage "Preparing to install...", which flashes on the
    screen and then goes and then nothing.
    What can I do to start and get into Access

    Generally, this happens when there are multiple versions on the machine,
    especially Access 97 with Access 2000 or later. Access 97 has a file which
    silently self registers itself. Later, when you run another version, it
    registers, but not silently. That is the message you are seeing.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
