I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The version is 2013

 A user must have either the full version, or a run time version (all design features are disabled), which is downloadable for free from Microsoft.

There is no standalone executable.

Simply double-click the form to open it in "Form View".

If you're in form design mode, then from the Design tab on the ribbon, select View -> Form View.
If you want the form to open automatically when the database opens -

A2010 instructions (A2013 will be similar)
-- Options
-----Current Database
-----------"Display Form:" -- choose form from dropdown.

Save and close.  When you open the database the next time, the selected form will open.  Typically, we use a switchboard or menu form as our opening form and that form leads to all other forms.
