I can't seem to get the editor to work, even after installing the Access 2010 runtime.

When running the program, after getting a security notice, I get a message as follows:

The database cannot be opened because the VBA project contained in it cannot be read. The database can be opened only if the VBA project is first deleted. Deleting the VBA project removes all code from modules, forms and reports. You should back up your database before attempting to open the database and delete the VBA project.
To create a backup copy, click Cancel and then make a backup copy of your database. To open the database and delete the VBA project without creating a backup copy, click OK.


Click "OK" and the editor doesn't work properly, click "Cancel" and it shuts down.

Not sure what I should do here, and the previous version (v1.5) gives the same error. I'm assuming there's something else I'm missing.

I'm running JA2 1.13 (8396 unstable), on Windows 8.1

Sorry to hear that you are having problems. I'll install Win 8.1 and check if it works for me. Are you using 32- or 64-bit Windows?

BTW, did you install the 32-bit version of Access 2010 runtime, even on 64-bit Windows? (you should)

I'm on 64-bit windows 8.1, and I installed the 32-bit version of access 2010. Puzzled as to why it's not working. Thanks for the assistance!

OK, so I've tried using the non-compiled older version (1.3r, from a link in an earlier post), and it works just fine. I've also found this support issue on the microsoft website:
(can't post links yet)<link> support#microsoft#com/en-us/help/2533794/error-message-when-you-run-a-compiled-microsoft-access-mde,-accde,-or-ade-file- in-access-2010-the-database-cannot-be-opened-because-the-vba-project-contained-in-it-cannot-be-read

It seems I've probably got a newer version of some DLL that's interfering with the older compiled version (a known issue with access 2010). [This issue occurs because Access 2010 SP1 uses a newer version of the VBE7.dll file (version 7.00.1619).]

I've tried re-downloading the access runtime and trying to "fix" the install, but it doesn't help.

Is there any chance you could create a non-compiled version of 1.6? Until then I can use the older version, which seems to work fine.

Non-compiled version is now available at http://www.dlknudsen.com/ja2-msge/MercStartingGear_v1.6r.zip

Truly sorry about the late reply -- real life has really been getting in the way of these little sideprojects lately.

Thanks a lot for looking into the problem yourself, and please let me know if you have any further problems!
