Read Run Access 2000 and Access 2013 on same machine by Marco @ 4/25/2013
My problem is that I have developed a pretty complex database quite a few years ago with access 97, later upgraded to 2000 version. The database includes a fair amount of code, but main issues have come when converting it to a replicated db. This helped solve the problem of synchronisation between various users and ability to use the DB offline when travelling abroad. but replication has caused serious complications which forced me to stop making changes to the structure to avoid continuous damage to the VB project! Converting to a later version is impossible as replication is no longer supported, and therefore I have had to start from scratch with a new db on 2013, hence wanting to have both 2000 and 2013 on the same machine. But as Richard confirmed, it does not work and the continuous reconfiguration I fear could cause damage to this db.
I the end I solved the problem the easy way... By purchasing a new laptop where I have installed the new access version!

Reply from Richard Rost:

I used to have nothing but continuous problems with database replication. I ended up building my OWN replication algorithm that manually checked each field for changes. It worked, but it was slow.

Read Run Access 2000 and Access 2013 on same machine by eddy geijselaers @ 4/24/2013
Hi Marco, Rick,

Don't know about 2010 and 2013. I have XP and 2010 on the same machine. If they don't have to be open at the same time they run just fine. By starting either one the program sets it settings it needs. No problems with other applications so far (over a year now).


Reply from Richard Rost:

Yes, they'll run OK on the same system, as long as you don't mind waiting 3 minutes for it to "configure..." every time you run the other version.

Read Run Access 2000 and Access 2013 on same machine by Marco @ 4/23/2013
Does anyone know how to run both Access versions 2000-2013 without installing Virtual machines? I am having issues after installing Access 2013. Every time I open either version, the software changes installation settings (replaces certain files in the directory C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office) thus  causing problems. Thank you in advance for your help.

Reply from Richard Rost:

I've always had this issue too. In fact, I was hoping to keep 2010 and 2013 installed on the same machine, but they don't want to get along. I spent about 10 minutes Googling for a solution and just gave up.
