multiple differing Office editions on 1 development PC? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Am not using touch screens so this is Win7 oriented:

    I am primarily an Access developer but since this question is about installation I thought this would be the better forum.  Also sometimes Excel is also involved and rarely but occasionally Word - so am looking at an overall Office answer.

    I need to go back and forth between 2007, 2010 and 2013 editions of Office in order to develop in the edition that the user has.  I can't just use 2013 because it has features that the 07 user won't recognize - - and I can't just use 2007 because a user may have 2013 features.

    Right now I have different PCs and just move to whichever machine matches the edition.  I would like to consolidate into 1 development PC. 

    Is there any technique that is Microsoft approved for this situation? ...and that will survive the automatic updates that are released by Microsoft.
