MS Access 2000 was working until a month ago (CrossOver Version 12.5.1 Ubuntu 14.04 )

I had MS Access 2000 running for the last 5 years in Ubuntu without any problems even when I've upgraded Crossover Office. Just a month ago it stopped working on both Ubuntu 12.04 and Ubuntu 14.04 (64 bit). The error I get when opening my data base on Ubuntu 14.04 is "the dynamic link library msjet40.dll could not be located."

The data base isn't corrupted because I can get it to work when running MSAccess in Virtualbox running XP Windows running MSAccess.
Any suggestions what has happened? It was working just a month ago.

How has the msjet40.dll disappeared in that month? How can I fix it?

Hi Steve,

Doing a quick Google I noticed that this missing MSJET40.DLL is a very common problem with Windows users. I suggest you perhaps use the following suggestion on this URL to try and fix problem?

Oh yes, also please keep in mind the following comment from this site (and I notice a lot of mention of this): "Another reason that you get msjet40.dll error is because the msjet40.dll file is infected by virus or spyware". Could that be why it worked and then stopped under crossover but still works in Virtual Box (which is a separate installation of Access)?

Seriously?! A link to a questionable "registry cleaner"? Ugh... Anyway, back to the OP problem. My suggestion is to install this in the same bottle where your copy of Office is installed.

Microsoft Jet 4.0 Service Pack 8

People that want to read more on what it is should read this Wikipedia article:

Microsoft Jet Database Engine
