If you right click the .ldb file, select Open With, then select choose the program you want to open with and navigate to Notepad. When it opens in Notepad, you should see the name or names of the people that have the database open.

Sometimes Access will randomly lock your database (creates a .lck file in same directory). Doesn't have to be another user in it at all. Try restarting your computer, then go to that directory and if you find a .lck file, delete it. Then try again to open your database file.

If this is a product you purchased, the key is on a sticker somewhere on the packaging. If you are trying to start using the 60-day trial version often pre-loaded on many new computers, the key will be on a sheet included with the other documentation that was in the box. Otherwise the only way you can get a legitimate key is to purchase one from Microsoft. There are sites listing product keys, but often these keys won't work when you try to activate the product.

There is an alternative application available called OpenOffice you might consider. It's completely free, and offers a PowerPoint type presentation program that can use Microsoft's ppt files. It can also create presentations that will play properly with PowerPoint. It also includes word processing, spreadsheet and database programs (like Word, Excel and Access), Rather than worrying about purchasing the costly MS Office suite, or trying to fake a product key, why not try OpenOffice?

Remove error 0*80040e09 cannot update

When putting files up on your hosted site (or on your own server), make sure the file and the directory have the proper writes to Read/Write/Create. A special file called the .LDB file must be created and if it can't a ReadOnly status could be issued. It's a file that contains the names of the users currently accessing the MDB file. It stands for Lock Database. 
If you are running on Windows add these attributes, if it's linux (not sure why you'd use MDB on a LINUX box, but it would be chmod +777.

Access problem

see if the LDB file still exist and delete it...

Whenever you open an Access database, a file with the same name as the database and an extension of LDB will be opened automatically. For example if you open Northwind.mdb in the samples directory of your Access/Office installation, a file called Northwind.ldb will be generated. This new file keeps track of users and the objects that require some form of locking in the database. When all users have exited gracefully from the database, the LDB file is closed down and deleted.

Might be a silly question, but - do you have Access installed on both machines? If you have moved the access file to your networking file, you'll need the main program on the machine you are trying to access it FROM as well...

Ms Access

Do you have permission to do so?

If so:

It is likely that your network administrator has some tool to either delete
the file or, else, boot users out of it so that you can delete it.

Microsoft JET Database Engine error '80040e09'

This worked for me in a similar situation; make a copy of the .mdb file in the same folder. Delete the original .mdb file and rename the copy with the name you used for the original. This should get rid of the read-only aspect. Good luck.
