I have an Access database that I started in Access 2013 (installed on my laptop). I then modified and in an Access 2010 install (on my desktop). I saved it as an .accde file on my desktop and then sent the file to a client who is running Access 2013 on their machine. When they try to open the .accde file, they get a message saying the file is a 32-bit file, and were not able to open the file. \
I tried fixing the issue by opening the Access database in my laptop that has Access 2013 installed, then saving the file as .accde file. I resent the newly saved .accde file to my client, but they still are not able to open the file because the file still shows it is a 32-bit file. What am I doing wrong? How can I fix this? Please help.
Thank you very much.
1. They un-install the 64 bit edition and install the 32 bit edition - this is the best for them and you. Microsoft still recommends the 32 bit edition for users over the 64 bit because of the lack of 64 bit software and that there are only a few advantages to the 64 bit edition
2. You don't distribute as a accde, but as a accdb That let's the DB run assuming your doing no API calls, using 3rd part DLL's or controls, or ODBC calls.
3. You have them install the A2010 runtime in 32 bit, and send them a A2010 accde.
4. You create the accde in the 64 bit edition of office.
