Side by side installs of Access XP and Access 2003

P: n/a
Hello all,

I know there are a lot of threads in the newsgroups and references in
the MS knowledge base about running different Access versions
simultaneously. Some of the solutions posted even appear to work so
long as one doesn't apply any service packs. At any rate, I am trying
to figure out how to run Access XP and Access 2003 on the same machine
without being bedeviled by the Windows Installer 'Preparing to
install...' dialog every time I switch between versions. I have
successfully been able to do this as long as I don't apply service
packs to either installation but I'd prefer to be up to date. Has
anyone been able to run both versions *with up to date service packs*
but without getting the tedious Windows Installer 'Preparing to
install...' dialogs when switching between versions? I'm running
Windows XP sp 2. Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks.
