Access runtime RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I have a problem with Access runtime 2016, it is not possible to open an accdb database created in Access 2016. I get the following error:

    "The database you are trying to open requires a newer version of Microsoft Access."

    Both are 64 bit versions.

    Hope someone can help.
    Yours sincerely

  • Hi Ole,

    Based on this error message, it seems to be related with Bigint datatype in Access 2016.

    You could refer link below:

    #"Database you are trying to open requires a newer version of Microsoft Access" error in Access

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-in/help/3208802/database-you-are-trying-to-open-requires-a-newer-version-of-microsoft

    Currently, there is no avaible Access 2016 runtime which supports Bigint.

    You could change the BigInt to Number or install full update office pacakage and start msaccess with /runtime parameter.

  • Hi,

    I am not 100% sure but double check if the Runtime has any updates you need to install. You might also try redownloading and reinstalling it (hoping the download would have the latest version).

    Just my 2 cents...

  • Hi Tao

    I found out that I should use the 32 bit version of Runtime.

    Yours sincerely
