NOTE: I asked this same question on DBA.StackExchange here, but I think the site is too new because not getting many responses. Cross-posting (is that right term?) here to get more
visibility. Let me know if I need to close the one over there.
I'm just not really sure the right place to put this.
This is really just a simple question: Can I run Access 2016 and Access 2013 on the same computer?
I currently am running Windows 10 and whenever I open an Access 2007-2013 format database in Access 2016 -- even though the database is already open -- a windows pops up that says "Installing Access 2013 please wait" (paraphrase).
It was suggested to run different versions of Access by putting one in a virtual machine. Well, I tried installing VVV (vagrant) on Windows 10 and it wasn't as intuitive as the YouTube videos made it seem.
- Is it possible/common to run Access 2013 and Access 2016 (both cloud versions) on the same Windows machine?
- If so, what is required?
- Can I do it without conflict if I don't use a Virtual Machine?
Any help is appreciated
