Based on information I got yesterday that said this should work I am running 2007 and 2010 Access on my computer.  But now every time I launch one after the other it goes through an install routine.  Is there a way to avoid this?

Nope. And after it has done this the last one opened becomes the default. If you want to open specific databases with a specific version though, you can use shortcuts pointing to the correct version of Access and the particular file and workgroup if applicable -

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\MSACCESS.EXE" "C:\Directory\database.mdb" /WRKGRP "C:\directory\workgroup file.mdw"
