The Access team is pleased to announce the release of Microsoft Access 2016 Runtime!
Microsoft Access 2016 provides a rich platform for developing database management solutions with easy-to-use customization tools. If no end user customization is required (including report modifications), you can choose to distribute those Access 2016 solutions so that they run without requiring a full installation of Access 2016. To do so, you must package and distribute your application with Access 2016 Runtime.
To get started visit Microsoft Access 2016 Runtime and download it today. Access 2016 Runtime is available for download in 38 languages.
Note for Office Click-to-Run (C2R) users:
As stated in the past, Office C2R and MSI of the same major version cannot be installed side by side. Currently, if you are using Office/Access 2016 C2R, we recommend that you install Access 2013 Runtime MSI if you need a side-by-side setup. The two versions are functionally equivalent, and this installation should work smoothly.

Product teams across Microsoft are striving to follow the spirit of being customer focused, and the Access team is no exception. The Access product team has been conducting onsite customer visits and talking to customers from all over the world to learn more about who our customers are and how they use Access in their business and personal lives.
Our goal is to maintain a continuous dialog with the Access community to discover user scenarios, pain points while working with the product, ideas and suggestions for improvements. To achieve this goal, we’ve set up a new dedicated Access UserVoice site. This is a great platform for customers from all over the world to suggest ideas for Access and then vote on them. This platform provides an opportunity for the entire community to voice their opinions and to directly influence the Access roadmap. The Access product team is closely monitoring this site and is responding to suggestions.
