Alternative to MS Office?

  machins 06:53 04 Aug 2007

I am having trouble with my Office 2000 installation - Access won't run -
It starts OK and them comes up with a warning box that "Required Registry Information is Missing and this application cannot run. Please rerun Setup to correct this problem."

I have uninstalled the suite and reinstalled 3 times with the same result.

Can anyone suggest what is wrong or is there another application that has sinmilar specs to Office 2000?

I had a similar problem wityh Autoroute, I cured that using system restore. It's worth a try if you know when the problem started.
Open Office is a free alternative, but I don't know if it has an Access equivalent.

Thank you rawprawn. I used a reg cleaner, uninstalled and then re-installed and all is now fine.

Thanks also Technotiger - I will download and see how it works, but the spec looks fine
