  • "MS Windows 2010"?

    There is no such thing.  There are:

    • ...
    • Windows 98
    • Windows 2000
    • Windows ME
    • Windows XP
    • Windows Vista
    • Windows 7
    • Windows 8
    • Windows 8.1
    • Windows 10

    and then there are also Windows Server versions

    • ...
    • Windows Server 2003
    • Windows Server 2008
    • Windows Server 2012
    • Windows Server 2016

    So which version are you referring to?


    "will not run MS access 2010 mdb or mde"

    What error do you receive? 
    What is happening exactly?
    Did you install MS Access?

  • Hi BestTE,

    first of all I would like to inform you that when you post the question on the forum then try to describe the issue in detail as much as possible.

    here you just mentioned your issue in one line.

    from that one line of description what I understand, it is possible that you are using Windows 10 operating system and trying to use Access 2010 version on that. in that you are having some issue but what is the issue you did not mentioned that.

    Windows 10 supports the MS Office 2010. so there is no question that we can use the Access 2010 on win10 or not. we can defiantly use that.

    then you had mentioned the extensions of Access db like mdb and mde.

    do you mean that you want to open / create .mdb or .mde database with Access 2010.

    then you can open the already created .mdb file in MS Access 2010.

    you can also create a new db and save it in old .mdb format. you just need to select the format when you "Save As" the db.

    also you can convert the old .mdb file to new .accdb format.

    you can refer the links mentioned below that will guide you.

    Save an Access 2010 database in an earlier file format

    Convert a database to the .accdb file format

    if your problem is not solved with above mentioned suggestion then please try to describe the issue in detail.

    we will try to suggest you further to solve your issue.
