Hi,
Everytime I try to open Access, I get this message:
This patch package could not be opened. Verify that the patch package exists and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer patch package.

I don't know what this means, and I can't open any of my Access files. I tried to install updates on the Microsoft website and it wouldn't work for some reason?

I'm using Access 2003 and Windows XP.

Thanks for your help!

Hello Liadan,

Here is the site that has the utility that you need from Microsoft. Installer CleanUp Utility


That should take care of you.
