    The creation process is almost the same in 2007 as in 2003 the "exception" in your case I think is the "Access 2007 Runtime" that is missing from the "destination computers" where you say the 2007 exe is not working.
    just donwload and install the runtime for the Access 2007 from the above link and see if now is working.

    There is no such beast as an Access ".exe" file. You can compile your database and save it in the .accde/.mde format, which will not allow end users to modify Forms, Reports, Macros and Modules, but they can still modify Tables and Queries.

    To save a 2007 database as an .accde file, click the DAtabase Tools ribbon tab, then click Make ACCDE.

    Note too that installing the 2007/2010 runtime side-by-side with earlier versions can cause troubles, so be careful with this.
