On a Windows 7 Pro 64 Bit System I have Office 2010 Pro installed excluding Access 2010.  Instead I have Office 2003 Pro Access 2003 installed.

I need to do development on both Access 2003 and Access 2010 applications.

Can I install the Office 2010 Access along side the Access 2003 (on the same system) or must I uninstall the Access 2003 before installing the Access 2010?

Thanks.

You can have both - make sure that you have Access 2010 in a separate folder to Access 2003.

Officially it's not recommended, but I have done similar before.

Hi Phillip,
This is great news.
Could you please define what you mean by "make sure that you have Access 2010 in a separate folder to Access 2003".  I.e. Could you please give me specific examples for both?

Thanks.
Bob .

When you install it, it will ask you for the default folder, e.g. C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office.

Make sure the second one you install is in a different folder, e.g. C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office 2010

And if you are installing the entire Office suite, make sure you know that you cannot have two Outlooks on the same machine.
