Access 2016 Runtime is now available for download

The Access team is pleased to announce the release of Microsoft Access 2016 Runtime!

Access FIMicrosoft Access 2016 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 2016 solutions so that they run without requiring a full installation of Access 2016. To do so, you must package and distribute your application with Access 2016 Runtime.

To get started visit Microsoft Access 2016 Runtime and download it today. Access 2016 Runtime is available for download in 38 languages.

Note for Office Click-to-Run (C2R) users:

As stated in the past, Office C2R and MSI of the same major version cannot be installed side by side. Currently, if you are using Office/Access 2016 C2R, we recommend that you install Access 2013 Runtime MSI if you need a side-by-side setup. The two versions are functionally equivalent, and this installation should work smoothly.
