  • You might want to expand a bit more on your question here.

    Keep in mind that Access 10 current version numbering would suggest you talking about Access 2000 which is now about 13 years old.

    Perhaps you mean Access 2010? In the case of Access 2000, the runtime package was quite expensive ($600-$700) dollars and you not find the runtime system for sale these days.

    Thankfully, later editions of the runtime system such as for Access 2010 are now available for free.

    As to "how" you create such applications you for the most part do not do ANY thing different than what the general approach is to create a regular Access application as you do now. In fact to use the runtime edition of Access, you will STILL simply copy your application (accde) to that target computer for it to run.

    So no modifications should be required to your application and you STILL must copy your accDE file to that target computer (the runtime system does not change nor touch your accDE file).

    For some insight and what the runtime system is all about you can read the following article of mine here:


    The above applies to Access 2007, but it much applies to any recent edition of Access.
