After a long, hard effort by many people, the stars have finally aligned. The Access team is pleased to announce the release of the Access 2013 Runtime! We know lots of you are very anxious to get your hands on the Access 2013 Runtime. You can now go and download the Access 2013 Runtime from the following location:
The Access 2013 Runtime is available for download in 38 languages.
Microsoft Access 2013 provides a rich platform for developing database management solutions with easy-to-use customization tools. If no end user customization is required (including report modifications), you can choose to distribute those Access 2013 solutions so that they run without requiring a full installation of Access 2013. To do so, you must package and distribute your application with the Access 2013 Runtime.
Web-based apps for SharePoint that are built with Access 2013 do not require a runtime–only a supported web browser is required.
