Access keeps running setup

I know this keeps coming up and there's loads on the web about it, but I've never found a satisfactory solution, what does anyone else do?
I've got legacy apps running in access 2k (need the old toolbars, security, if it aint broke etc + I love access 2k)
Now I've got people who want accdb format...how to I supress this constant office setup when I switch ?

so, you have two versions of access running in your pc?
NOT a good idea.

<.how to I supress this constant office setup when I switch >
you can't if you keep the two version of access in a single PC running on the same OS

if you wat to have two versions of access in one PC
- use VMware or
- use Virtual PC

If you mean the "Please wait while Windows configures Office x.xx ..." message ....

Bad news; There is no way to stop that message when switching between Access versions.

Not a problem with Word or Excel ... just Access.

Sorry.

Go with what the Experts above suggested.

I, personally, ...just live with the delay...
The virtual machine option was overkill for me, ...but most experts here have had goo success with it...
