Exclamation Using Office Premium 2007 Trial with Already Installed Office Home and Student 2007

What I am trying to do:
I have an installed, retail version of Office Home and Student 2007. I would like to try MS Access 2007, and tried a custom installation of just Access from the Office Professional Trial. My operating system is Vista.

The problem:
Unfortunately, I am unable to activate the trial version of Access. The several times that I have tried, the activation screen appears, the progress bar fills half way, then the screen disappears without further messages. However, when I go to use the program I get a message saying the application is disabled. Additionally, when returning to my other office applications (eg Word) I find that I have to reactivate them before using.

If I could somehow dictate a solution to the problem:
I would prefer not to have to uninstall (and then reinstall later) my Home and Student Version if possible. I would also prefer to have free tickets to Disney World...just in case anyone was thinking of throwing some away...

Thank you for your help in advance!
