  1. Release an Office 2019 Access Runtime

    The Access Team previously stated that "Access is included in all Office 365 plans and Access 2016 Runtime click-to-run is also available for customers".
    This leaves a gap for anyone that has installed a lower version of Office 2019 that does not include Access. The Access 2016 runtime will not install as it is MSI, the Office 365 access runtime will not install as it clashes with Office 2019, which it insists you uninstall.
    We are having to tell our customers to not install Office 2019.
    So please can we have a runtime that plays nicely with Office 2019

    All, because Office365 is essentially Office 2019 with more up-to-date features (on a recurring basis), installing the Office365 Access Runtime is the same as installing the 2019 Access Runtime, with more up-to-date features.

    For those of you on Office 2019, you should also be able to install O365 Access Runtime alongside Office 2019. If this is not working for you, it may be because you are on a VL version of 2019, where you will first need to install a 2019 VL runtime, and then install the O365 runtime.
    If you are on an Office 2019 version that includes Access, there is no need for you to install the runtime. Nevertheless, you are still able to launch Access in runtime mode.

    • For a consumer version of the Runtime, please install the O365 Access Runtime (instructions: https://nam06.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fsupport.office.com%2Fen-us%2Farticle%2FDownload-and-install-Office-365-Access-Runtime-185c5a32-8ba9-491e-ac76-91cbe3ea09c9&data=04%7C01%7CEbo.Quansah%40microsoft.com%7Cdd1d0f9e7282456013ea08d7fd9739f5%7C72f988bf86f141af91ab2d7cd011db47%7C0%7C0%7C637256698260160537%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C-1&sdata=pKaL4u79PsYIBgpLhjpVrWUilgEbTl%2B8pzrdfYuWp0M%3D&reserved=0)

    • For an Enterprise version of the Runtime, you need to use…

  2. Please, please hurry and release the 2016 runtime

    So many of us publish Access desktop applications for needy users that cannot afford to buy Office products; without the 2016 runtime available to us those needy users must do without. Please help us.
