Stand-alone version of Access 2016 and Office 2010 ?

Does anyone know if I can install Access 2016 (64bit or 32bit) on the same PC as Office 2010 (32bit)?  
That installed version of Office does not include Access 2010.    
Office 2010 is already deployed company-wide, but one user needs a new version of Access 2016.

And, one can be 32 bit and the other 64 bit
I don't think that's correct. All Office components must be the same "bit-ness" on the same machine.

I believe it will have to be 32 bit (can't mix office component bit levels) but except for Outlook, you can have different versions of office/office products on the same computer.

Yes you can.  And, one can be 32 bit and the other 64 bit -- unless you want to connect office 2010-32 directly to access data from access 2016-64.  I'm not sure that would or would not work. My initial thought... it should be OK, since connecting to the back end data should only involve passing between two discrete programs in memory, but you never know what the office developers may have tried to leverage.

hi Rob,

agree with Lee and Scott -- you can have multiple versions if they are both/all the same bitness -- either 32-bit or 64-bit.  Also, it is a good idea to install the lowest versions first -- as they usually are anyway ~

have an awesome day,

Actually, it's a little more complicated then that and depends on the versions involved.   With A2007 you can have 32 bit, and then A2010 and up as 64.

 It's only with A2010 and up that they all have to be the same bitness.

Thanks.  We tried installing both 32 and 64 bit versions on several different PC's, and it did complain if we didn't match the bit-ness.
