    The current plan is to make Access RT 2019 available for customers to install from the Office Deployment Tool. This should be available in the second half of 2019.
    The recommendation for Office 2019 perpetual consumers, is (and will remain) to install the free version of O365 Access Runtime from the download page.

    Isn't there a conflict here? The problem I had is exactly that Office365 Access runtime would not install alongside Office 2019 Standard (insisted that I uninstall Office 2019 Standard when I tried), yet that is apparently the "will remain" situation in the proposed solution. I am confused now, unless by "perpetual", MS means something that does not include "Standard". For now, I have had to resort to using Access runtime 2013, not Office365 Access Runtime, on all of my Office 2019 Standard stations. That will work only until the developers decide to use some new 2019 feature that will not work with 2013 runtime.

    Brian supported this idea  ·

    I second this, for sure. When I could get Office 2016 Standard, I could then install Access Runtime 2016. But Access 2016/O365 runtime cannot be installed with Office 2019 Standard, so we are stuck with Access 2013 Runtime. Workable, but for now long, and at what limitation for developers who cannot use any feature introduced since 2013, but without knowing until the app is tried on a 2013 workstation.
