Referencing wrong MSACC.OLB

I remote into a Citrix server to develop applications using Access 2003.  Access 2007 is also installed on this server and this hasn't been a problem until now.  The problem that I am suddenly having is that when I either create or modify an Access 2003 application it sets a reference to 'Microsoft Access 12.0 Object Library' rather than 'Microsoft Access 11.0 Object library'.  In other words it points to MSACC.OLB in the Office12 folder rather than in the Office11 folder.  
How can I prevent this from happening?

You should be able to uncheck the 12 reference and manually add in the 11 reference.  This should persist for that database.  If you want new databases to use 11, you can create an empty database, switch it to 11, then make copies of it instead of creating them from scratch.

I was under the impression that Terminal Services/Citrix did not allow multiple versions of Office or Office products on the same machine, but I could be wrong. Citrix could have gotten around this limitation, but I'm not sure.

It wouldn't let me uncheck the 12 reference.  It said it was in use.  It also would not let me add the 11 reference.
I took care of the problem for now by uninstalling Access 2007 which we are not using yet.
