Access Runtime/Access Full Version

We have a citrix server that users will be signing into from a remote
location. One application is an Access database. Right now, lan users
are using the Access 2003 runtime to run these applications.

Installing the runtime on the citrix server(s) isn't a big deal. The
catch is, I want to install a copy of the full version of Access so
that I can sign in and do some developing if I have to.

Is it possible to have both the runtime and full version installed?

I asked this question on another site (www.utteraccess.com) and some
one said it is possible. So I installed Office 2003 in a different
location (...Program Files\Microsoft Office 2003\....) and then
installed the runtime (i don't remember what order i did this in)
thinking it would go into PF\Microsoft Office\Office11 but I don't see
it.

What do you think my options are? The easiest is to take off full
version of access and just have the ART. Developing I couldn't do
since the full version isn't installed.

What do you think?

Thanks for the help.

I would receommend that you not attemp this.

However, for the "end" users, simply ensure that their shortcut to start the
application has the /runtime switch.

Doing the above should allow your users to work in "runtime" only mode.

I'm developing Access applications on a PC and a notebook with both Office
2003 and Access 2003 Developer (and Runtime) installed, with no problems at
all. I deploy applications with the Access runtime to customers with a
variety of Office installations all the way from Access 97 to 2003 (or none
at all) with no problems reported. I distribute the Runtime installation on
a separate CD.

When I deploy an app, I also include two registry changes that sets the
macro security to avoid the pop-up messages when run the first time.

Merle,

You have both Access 2003 Full version and Access 2003 Runtime both
installed on the same computer?

When I installed the RT first and clicked on msaccess.exe, i get a
message saying I can't run it (can't remember exact msg, but basically
since it was a runtime, I can't open it). Then I installed Office 2003
w/ Access in a different location. When I click on that msaccess.exe
it opens up Access and I can create/edit etc a mdb. When I go to the
ART msaccess.exe, it then opens up full version access. Since there
is a full version installed, it acts like I can't open it up.

As far as putting /runtime at the end of the shortcut...I thought about
it but I wasn't sure how that would work for the licensing of Access?
