I am creating a package for MS Office 2003. The requirement is that it should upgrade MS Office XP professional to MS Office 2003. But it should not do anything to MS Access already present on the machine, neither shall it install MS Access 2003.
I am using ORT to create MST for the MSI of MS Office 2003. While creating this, I select the option "do not remove any version of MS Access from the machine". This helps in excluding MS Access version previously available on the machine from getting removed during upgrade. However MS Access 2003 in also getting installed, and I am not able to exclude it from the installation.
Please let me know if anyone has any solution to proceed with.

Run the Custom Installation Wizard from the ORK with the Pro11.MSI

On Screen 6 0f 24 select the vesions of Access you want to leave in the PC

On Screen 7 of 24 Change the installation state of Access to "Not Available"

From memory, I think you need to select 'Advanced Options' (or something worded very similarly) on the first or second screen when running the OCT. That then enables you to select or de-select the different products which make up the suite.

As suggested, I have already done the following:
On Screen 6 0f 24 select the vesions of Access you want to leave in the PC
On Screen 7 of 24 Change the installation state of Access to "Not Available".

I also tried:
select 'Advanced Options' (or something worded very similarly) on the first or second screen when running the OCT. That then enables you to select or de-select the different products which make up the suite.

But none of them worked out. If a version of MS Access is already present on the machine, then it does not uninstall it and also installs MS Access 2003. So, both the versions of MS Access are present simultaneously (there are 2 different shortcuts, and launch different versions).

Kindly suggest something else.
