Is Access Database Engine 2010 supported for Windows Server 2012 R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear Friends, 

                         I have installed Access Database Engine 2010 on Windows Server 2012 R2 (development environment).

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-sg/download/details.aspx?id=13255&e6b34bbe-475b-1abd-2c51-b5034bcdd6d2=True

    Since in the system requirements Windows Server 2012 R2 is not a supported OS, this engine cannot be deployed to staging and production environment.

    I am using this tool to upload data from Excel to SharePoint Server 2013.

    Please advise, if there is a higher version of Access Database Engine available or suggest a tool which will pass the compatibility constraint.

    Thanks

  • Hi Dilip,

    We can download the latest Access 2013 runtime from link below:

    The Microsoft Access 2013 Runtime enables you to distribute Access 2013 applications to users who do not have the full version of Access 2013 installed on their computers.

    Hope it is helpful.

  • While something might state that the server OS is not supported, there no reason I can think of that would prevent you from installing Access on that server.

    It not clear if you attempting to install Access and it does not install, or you just asking as a FYI?

    One issue that certainly could or would come up is that if you are running the 64 bit version of office (word, Excel etc.), then you MUST install the x64 bit version of Access.

    As a general rule it still recommend that you use the x32 bit version of Office (even on your server and even when running an x64 bit OS).

    So the Access runtime should install without issues, it just not clear if you having trouble installing Access, or as noted just asking for information.

    So to answer your question: Access should install without issues.
