Microsoft Access Runtime

To install any of our products you need Microsoft Access 2016 or later installed on your computer.

You can download the free Microsoft Access Runtime by using one of the following methods.

If you have Office 365 or no Office applications at all

  • Add the Access Runtime by clicking the following link to download the free Office 365 Access Runtime.
  • Choose your language and then click either the 32-Bit Download or the 64-Bit Download button.
    If you already have Office 365 installed, you need to download the 32-Bit/64-Bit file to match your current Office software (you can't mix 32-Bit and 64-Bit Office applications on the same computer).
    If you have no Office applications at all, we recommend you choose the 32-Bit file.
  • Run the downloaded file to install the Office 365 Access Runtime.

If you have Office 2016 (or earlier) 

  • Click the following link to download the free Access 2016 Runtime.
  • Choose your language and click the Download button.
  • If you have Office 2007 or later installed, you need to download the 32-Bit/64-Bit file to match your current Office software (you can't mix 32-Bit and 64-Bit Office applications on the same computer). 
    The 32-bit file is the one with x86 in the filename; the 64-bit version has x64 instead.
  • Run the downloaded file to install the Access 2016 Runtime.

If you can't get either of these methods to work for you, please contact us for assistance. We can connect remotely to your computer to help get the application installed.
