I will be providing a client with a database written by me in Access 2010.

I want to advise them to download Access Runtime.

There appears to be two versions to download;

AccessRuntime.exe
AccessRuntime_X64.exe

I do not know their PC configurations.
Which Runtime should they download?

Probably not x64.

And pretty sure You need to install the Runtime with your installation program.

i have not tried those versions yet, but it looks like

AccessRuntime_X64.exe will only run in 64 bit configuration while
Only the 32-bit Access 2010 Runtime is supported on Windows XP Service Pack 3.

AccessRuntime.exe - This is 32 bit and this AccessRuntime_X64.exe is 64 bit.

I would stick with the 32 bit unless they have Office 64 bit already installed on the PC.
