    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.
