Default Access Wizards Won't work

Text

Hi,

I'm having trouble with my access wizards. I've searched the archive and found a problem posted in '01 that was very similar to mine. I went through all the changes that they said, and nothing. I've uninstalled and reinstalled office several times now.

Here's my problem. I can't install buttons, create forms, queries or anything thing with my wizard. If I want to create them from scratch, that's not a problem. I'm not able to use my wizards. I went through and did a custom install of office, where I chose the addins specifically. Nothing. Then I proceeded to uninstall and try again. Nothing. I've checked the Regedit and the addin folder that should be in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VBA isn't. I usually don't bother the information in the regedit, but if I uninstalled office and removed any references to it in the registry, would that be catastrophic? Any help to resolve this issue would be much appreciated. I've exhausted my options and the knowledge of those in I.T. who would know what's going on.

Thanks,
:)

OK, here's a potentially "Did you remember to plug it in?" type question, but I'll ask just in case.

When you're in design mode in your Access form and your toolbox is showing, the second from the left button is your "Control Wizards" toggle button. Is that ON? If it's OFF, then your wizards won't activate when you try to add form elements that utilize wizards.

Or is your problem that they DO activate but they're not functioning properly?

Hi,

Yes it's on. That was a thought I had initially, but it's on. When I try to start any of my wizards or put a control button into a form, I get an error that the wizard is either disabled or hasn't been installed. I've checked. It wasn't disabled. I went through at least two custom installs where I set all wizards to 'run on my computer', instead of the default 'install on first use'.

Thanks,

Did you try uninstalling office first then reinstalling? If you have the room on your hard drive, you also might want to set the entire Access installation to "Run all on my computer".

Do you have more than one version of Access installed on your pc? I had a similar issue while running 97, 2k and XP on the same laptop. Seems IT didn't read the 'readme' before installing the newer versions and they kept overwriting my wizards with the newer versions which of course wouldn't work in the older versions.

Strangely, I had the exact same problem the other day. However, it only affected one database file.
Does it happend on every file? or just one?

I'm usually the magnet for strange things. Glad to see I have
company.:) It wasn't just that file. I started a brand new
database and had the same problem.

I have a similar problem -- I get this error "Microsoft Access : ActiveX Component can't create object". This happens when I try to "create a form using the wizard" option. I'm using Access 9.0.3821 (SR-1). Is this the same problem you are getting. I've tried reinstalling serveral times... I'm about to reboot -- maybe it will work soon??
