ms access 2k10 Runtime: Can u run external accdb's

Last Modified: 2016-03-08
I have field techs with laptops that I perioically send updated access apps to. I would not like to license and install MS Access on these since they only run particular apps. I am familiar with creating RunTime App installation packages and distributing, but am looking for a simpler solution. If I install a runtime library on the laptop, can I then just supply .accdb apps and run them using the library?
