    as much as i know it is not possible.

    iam using mssql 2000 and 2005 on one machine.<i> but with the same business one version</i>.

    i made a sbo-common backup from 2000 and restored it to 2005.

    since them i can change in the business one between the mssql servers.

    sometimes very useful when you have still some customers that use mssql2000

    (and they please you to send them a mssql2000 db backup).

    Krzysztof Sala,

    The only way to have different versions of SAP Business One running on the same physical machine is if you use VMWare or Virtual PC.

    We are running 2004C and 2007A on 2 MS SQL 2000 instanses on the same server. The only problem is to separate 2004 and 2007 licence servers.

    In regards to the clients machines: 2007C Client is installed properly, 2004C Client is just copied as a directory to another folder and working proper

    PS: by-design issue: addons will work only for the client's sversion which is properly installed

    Just give a try

      Hello Krysztof,

      Maybe its possible but there's always a change that one or both of your SBO's is getting strange behavior. I think the best way is to use Microsoft virtual pc of server. This is free software (if I am right) from Microsoft, you need only a license for your second Operating System.
