Installing older versions of Access after newer versions

Every once in a while this comes up in discussion somewhere somewhere.  There is a Microsoft Knowledge Base article or two telling you to ensure you install various versions of Access in chronological order.

Microsoft is wrong.   I’ve been installing Access in various randomish non chronological order for the last four or five installs. Randomish meaning different as far as I can recall back.  <smile>

I did just that a few days ago after replacing my laptop hard drive and reinstalling the OS and such.  A2007, then A2003, then A2000. I haven’t yet done A97 but will soon for the help file if nothing else.   Installing Access 97 will get the License/Hatten font problem of course.
