I need advice regarding setting up my laptop with multiple versions of Office.

I'm an Access developer and my clients have different versions of Office. I have installed on my laptop Office 2010 and Office 365 - using 2013. My current issue is Outlook. I have 1 client that uses Outlook 2010. I need to go to my backup PC to compile the database with the correct Outlook Object Library. Yes I should probably be using late binding but I have no idea how to do that! frown.gif

I now need to install Office 2016 while keeping Office 2013 and 2010. I was thinking of creating a Virtual Machine and installing Office 2010 (32-bit) and Office 2013 (32-bit) on it. However, I can't find an Office 2010 32-bit download.

Then I thought of putting a copy of the Outlook 14 Object Library - would that work?

Thank you in advance for your advice.

Hi. A Virtual Machine is really the best approach. Just my 2 cents...

As theDBguy points out - a virtual machine is best for this. Today's laptops can generally handle a few VM's.

I only work in VMs for old versions of Access these days.

It does cost more to maintain separate licenses for the OS in each VM, though.
