You can have a little control using Office 2013/2016 Deployment Tool over Office365 ProPlus version.

Otherwise you cannot officially customize standard Click-To-Run Office365 installation. You have all or nothing.

Another way is to buy a version without Access.

If what you need is to run another version of Access, you can install the free runtime of any other version than 2016.

 You can't though co-exist 32 and 64 bit versions above Access 2010 from what I've heard.

Hello: I can't get all my customers to buy a version without Access.

Gustav:  already install it with  run-time 2010

Not quite sure what you mean.  I'm aware that you can't 32 bit access with 64 bit office but this is not the situation in this case.

So what is your problem with an existing Access 2016?

OK, then - as stated - I would address this issue to SageKey support.

You may be able to uninstall Office 365 completely, then reinstall only selected components using the Deployment Tool  from Microsoft:

Thank you all.  I only wanted to remove Access temporarily to see if it was the problem.  I don't think I can do this generally on client machines.  They are entitled to use the software they have paid for.  I need to solve this problem in another way.

Thanks again.  The information was useful.
