Install Access 2000 on Windows XP that has Office 2002?

P: n/a
Hi.

Is it safe to instll Access 2000 on a system that already has Windows XP and
Office 2002 (Word, Excel Access, Powerpoint). Anyone done this?

I would install it in a searate directory but don't know about any common
dlls etc.

I ask this because at my work we use Access 2000 and would like to work at
home, but don't want to get into compatability/conversion issues between the
2 versions as I have Office 2002 at home.

Thanks.

Fred, her are two Microsoft Knowledgebase links you can visit to get more

I currently have Office 97, Office 2000, and Office XP (2002) on the same
drive on my desktop computer using Windows 2000, and it kind of works, but I
do not recommend it and neither does Microsoft. Over time, certain things
in MS Access don't work quite the way they do on a fresh install or when the
drive is dedicated to a single MS Office version. Consequently, I have set
up my laptop with a multi-boot system; the operating system and different
versions of Office are on two separate drive partitions. This works great.
The only problem is, to go from one version to the other, I have to reboot
the computer and select the appropriate drive during reboot. It is worth
it, however, to avoid the clunky operation when two versions of Office
reside on the same drive.

Good luck,
