This answer was rated:

Just installed office 2010 on new laptop. Have downloaded a small Access application that I have written and has run on previous versions of Office. Dies with an error - Cant find project or Library. Believe this has something to do with References. Click on Tools on the toolbar which exposes a dropdown with References, Macros, Options etc. Trouble is Reference is not clickable, has not been enabled.
How do I enable the References options??
Thanks, Jeff
Hi there Jeff and welcome!

A possibility is that code is still running in the background which will cause this to happen.

Try selecting Run, Reset from the menu in the VB editor (or click the square VCR-style icon).

Once done, see if references is still greyed out. If it is, can you please upload the database to and provide me the download link? I can than take a look at this.
