Thanks again M$

I was receiving a 'no license' error when trying to run an old copy of MS access. "Naturally", I thought "this must be some weird licensing error". WRONG! From MS 'support'::
When you try to install Access 97, you have to avoid the 'Microsoft Access can't start because there is no license for it on this machine' error message caused by the presence of the Hatten font...
A font? Causing the application to fail? And then it issues an error message that has nothing to do with the problem? On what planet does this make sense?
