Unrecognized database format

What keeps causing this to occur? The solution seems to be just opening the backend file and it auto-repairs itself. But, how do I prevent this in the first place? I'm not sure what background info to provide, please ask away.

I think the recommended solution/workaround is to apply the steps to both the server and the client machines.

"In fact, you should only need to apply the Registry Hack to the server housing the back-end file. You do NOT need to apply the registry hack to each userís PC.

So basically, go onto the Server, open a Command Prompt and run the 3 lines provided in Microsoftís article (above) and everything should fall back into place."

Hi. I know what it says, but that was "old" information.

So Microsoft's workaround/solution is to perform these steps on the dozens of clients using the DB? Cool, cool. Lol

No, not MS, per se, more like the Access community recommends it, since there's really no official solution out of Redmond yet.
