WHONET was developed for the Microsoft Windows operating system,
but it also runs well on MacOS computers using a Windows emulation,
virtual machine, or partition. For possible solutions, you can do a web search:
Running Windows programs on a Mac computer
WHONET uses a very old data file structure called dBASE,
and we are experiencing increasing compatibility issues.
For more details about these issues and solutions,
refer to our page on
WHONET dBASE file compatibility issues.
There could be a conflict between the Microsoft Access Database Engine installed
with WHONET and the Microsoft Office version installed on your computer.
For example, a computer with Microsoft Office 64-bit may prevent the 32-bit version of WHONET from installing correctly.
A mismatched Office version and Microsoft Access Database Engine version can also cause a problem sometime after installation, for example when a Windows update has occurred.
If this occurrs, please uninstall WHONET as well as any version of the Microsoft Access Database Engine, then install the WHONET which matches your version of Microsoft Office.
