I have an Access compiled program (Program.mde) which I need to start programmatically from another instance of access.
Is there any way I can start an Access MDE programmatically when the machine is using the Microsoft Access Runtime 2016?

When my code is executed on machines which have Access installed, I use:

strPath1 = "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\MSACCESS.EXE"
strParameter = "C:\Disti-Master\Database\Inventory_Program.mde"

Call Shell(strPath1 & " " & strParameter)

MY PROBLEM OCCURS WHEN THE MACHINE USES THE MSACCESS RUNTIME.  
IN this case I can't figure out how to start the program using the shell command.
