can you force CR Runtime to use different minor version?


My customer could not install our program (which includes CR Runtime for Visual Studio CRPE32 ver 13.0.10) because it said "another newer version is already installed". We use VS2013. Customer has a different app also installed that uses CR 13.0.21. From reading posts I understand that these 2 minor versions cannot be installed side by side, but is there any way to force CR to use the already installed ver 13.0.21 without us having to compile our system with that specific runtime. I seem to remember seeing some sort of switch on another product that said something like "allow use of any minor version". It would be great if CR would allow that. If not, how can you run two apps on the same pc that each have a different minor ver of the CR Runtime? Seems like there should be a way to do that.
