Access 2010 Runtime problems RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I use my A2010 to make an application, and when my friend tried to run it on his machine, the reports part couldn't work.

    Both machines are Windows 7, I packaged the application with Access 2010 Runtime as my friend only has Office Home & Student 2007.

    The installation seems ok since the program opens and did all the stuff except the reports.

    Appreciate any thoughts. I'm a novice on this stuff.

    Thanks.

  • You may run into Compatibility issues when developing in Access 2010 and using it in Access 2007:

    With that said, does it return any error messages or is Access crashing?

    When using Runtime, it's essential having Error handling in place, else Access can crash just like that.

    Hope this helps,

  • If you have service pack 1 on your Office 2010 then you should read the following article...

    ...However, Access MDE, ACCDE, and ADE databases that are created by using the 32-bit version of Microsoft Access 2010 SP1 will not work correctly with the RTM version...

  • Did your friend run Windows Update after installing your application? 

    Do both your machine and your friend's have SP1 appliced to Windows 7?
