Installing Acces2K Run-time breaks Access2003

Hi

I have an app that uses the a2K run-time. I have just discovered that
installing this app breaks an access2003 installation causing the user
to have to repair the installation using the original installation CD.

I would prefer not to be seen to be 'breaking' customer's computers,
(thanks Microsoft!!!) Does anyone know how to avoid this happening? I
am installing the run-time into a separate folder under my program
folder (C:\program files\mars\AccessRT). I am also installing other
components, such as MDAC2.7 and various windows common controls (6)
but I am very suspicious of the A2K run-time as I know it is
bug-ridden and a rogue to install alongside Access97 anyway.

Anyone come across this and can verify that it is indeed the A2K
run-time that is breaking Acess 2003 or anyone know how to get around
this safely?

Thanks
Marian

You probably need to buy a third party installation tool,
AND a third party installation script.

Yup, there are ways around this but they're a PITA from the customers viewpoint.

The best solution is going to be the Sagekey scripts along with either Wise or
Installshield.
