logbook blocked

When I open Ham radio deluxe, progress is halted by the refusal of the logbook to open. The stated reason is that it is incorrectly configured with the operating system (Windows 10). Can you please help me to rectify this problem?

Got round it without having to uninstal Office.

Found the latest logbook back up.

Installed the MariaDB database and ODBC  engines.

Loaded HRD and mariaDB on second Windows machine and set it up to use MariaDB and created a source.

Then copied LogbookDatabases.xml across to the main machine and ran HRD.

Created the matching database source and imported the backup into the new database.

No problem provided you don't try doing anything with the Access ODBC sources.
