I have 2 versions of my ms access application.

I would like to place them both on a single cd so that the user can choose which version they want to install.

Because of access runtime, they will not both fit on the cd.

Is there a way to do this without the redundancy of ms access runtime 2010.

Hi MichaelC

Did you find out an answer to this question. I asked something similar in the Deployment forum and got no answer. I think I will try to highlight my question to Cole.

If you are working with limited space you can offload some of the need for storage by building a basic Wizard project with only the Runtime and Service Packs you are using.
You'll have to ask the user to install this first regardless of what version they pick but then you won't have to include the runtime files with each install package.

It isn't ideal, since it puts some of the work in the user's lap, but it can get you around a space related issue.
