Microsoft Office, Access 2013 32 bit versus 64 bit
Posted on 2013-10-30
I have a client whose PC broke down and he purchased a new one along with Office 2013. It has been installed as 64 bit. There are known problems with Access 64 bit installations. The concerted wisdom in the past has been to install Access in 32 bit mode.
My first thought is to simply uninstall office 64 bit and re-install Office 32 bit. But I remember reading somewhere that it may not be that simple. It was intimated that when you install Access 64 bit and uninstall, then re-install in 32 bit, it leaves some sort of trail (like in the registry or something) and things can still get goofed up. Anyone know if this is true or what the issues are? Anyone have practical experience with this able to offer counsel?
