Access 2016 Runtime is not patched. RRS feed

  • Question

  • The download for MS Access 2016 Runtime is dated Dec 2015.  There are multiple bugs with this version, images not displaying, freezing after export to PDF etc.

    Patches are available for these issues in the full version of Access 2016 but these patches do not fix the issues with the Runtime version.

    I'm perplexed that MS have not updated the Runtime since 2015.  I've tried MS support channels but I'm not getting very far, any idea how we can get MS to release a patched version of Access 2016 Runtime?

  • It seems that you can actually update the Runtime..just download the latest Update:

    ..extract the files and overwrite the original ones....untested.

  • Yes that is a workaround I was aware of and as you say it's untested.  It seems crazy though that the Runtime hasn't been patched by MS.

    Are there avenues available to request this without paying for a support plan?
