The Anglers Database was developed to run on Windows Operating Systems for the home user, such as Windows 98™, ME and XP. Windows 2000 is associated with commercial applications and servers. It allows the user to configure the installed operating system in ways that wouldn't be possible in ME or XP which in turn can cause problems when either installing The Anglers Database or running it.
One issue we have found is that some versions of Windows 2000 require a component called MDAC 2.6. This comes with Windows ME and XP but is occasionally missing from Windows 2000.
If you are a Windows 2000 user then please go to the Microsoft Website and install MDAC 2.6 before installing The Anglers Database. Importantly, install a trail version of The Anglers Database and try running it. If you experience any problems then please Email us at AskTheExpert@AnglersDatabase.com with an explanation of the issue. We will do our best to assist you.
