Access 2007 and 2010 Installed on Terminal Server

Are there any issues with installing both Access 2007 AND Access 2010 on a Terminal Server? I have a client that wants to do this and I wanted to be sure there were no known issues.

Ei0914--I expect the same answer will apply to Access 2007 and 2010

It seems the answers are contradictory -- some saying it's okay, and others saying it's not a good idea...

  Why do they need both?  A2010 is a better 2007.  I would not bother with 2007.

Ei0914--The first answer in the reference I suggested reads "Note Microsoft does not support using multiple versions of Microsoft Office on versions of Microsoft Windows that have Terminal Services enabled. If you want to run multiple versions of Office, disable Terminal Services."
That is your situation (use of Terminal Services).  The other responses seem to ignore that point.

  You can get away with it to a point.  As noted, some versions mixed work better then others.  For example, A2000 and A2003 are almost seamless as long as they are in seperate directories.

  But A2003 with A2007 or A2010 doesn't work well.  You end up suffering through "repairing..." every time you switch.  Same for A2007 and A2010.

  In a terminal services environment, which is typically locked down, that can be very problematic as users don't have full registry access.

  I would avoid it.
