.. hello helpful people ..

.. I was trying to install MS Access 97 ... and got an error .. (windows system error 1157)

.. it says:

-- the setup routines for Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb) ODBC driver could not be loaded due to system error code 1157.
.. (could not load the setup or translator library).


.. I've read that installing DATAACC.EXE helps .. but I don't have the original MS Office 97 CD here at work. (I have an update version that installs Access only).



.. during the installation (right at the end) .. it's says:

-- The config. of the ODBC Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb) driver failed.


* running windows 98 .. on a crap system .. but I need MS Access .. any help would be GREATLY appreciated

.. thanks.
