Hi

I have valid Office software for Office 2007 and Office 2010
I build VB.net Excel Add-ins using Visual Studio 2010.
I currently only have my Office 2007 installed but have to also
install my Office 2010 on my machine to open customer's files
What is the best way to install Office 2010 side by side 2007
so that there is no disruption to my development of Excel Add-ins
for Excel 2007?

There is no good way to install two versions of Ms Office side by side. The only recommended approach is installing Windows on a virtual machine and installing the other version of office on the virtual machine.

There are several good virtual computer software, personally I use VMmware Workstation, it is not free. you can use Virtual PC or VirtualBox both are freeware.

A Virtual machine is a program that emulates a physical machine, once you install the virtual machine software, you can install another OS (Windows/Linux/Mac etc.), then you can use the virtual machine as if it was your OS. You can switch back and forth between the Host OS (your real OS) and the Guest OS (the virtual OS).
