Disabling Install on Demand

By blarman ·
Does anyone know a good way to disable "install on demand" for Office 2000? I have both Access 97 and Access 2000 installed (Yes, it is critical for both to be on my PC), but I have some scheduled macros which error out occasionally. I suspect theproblems are due to the REALLY annoying part of Office 2000 that seems to think I need to reinstall Access every time I start it up.

Is there anything I can do to disable this? The macros need to run on a daily basis - I can NOT accept errors.

Access 97 and Access 2000 are supposed to be able to coexist on the same machine. If you're having the install problem, try the following:

1) Insert your office 2000 disk (hopefully for the last time).
2) Run the setup program.
3) Go through the wizard and choose 'Custom Installation.'
4) When you see the 'tree' with the different programs listed, left click the first item and select 'Run all from My Computer.'

Finish the wizard and let the install program do its thing. If this doesn't work, your problem may be Office 97 related. You could try uninstalling both or even reinstalling your OS. However, I would advise against either of these since I haven't seen your problem first-hand and it may be something else.

Give my first suggestion and try and feel free to send me an e-mail if you have any questions. Good luck.
