Will our programs work on a 64Bit PC

Our software is designed to run in a 64 bit environment, however as is utilises MS Office 32 bit runtime components, it will not run on PC installed with 64 bit MS Office 2010/13/16/19.  This is because 'Microsoft will not allow both 32 bit and 64 bit runtime files to operate in the same environment'. This is not a 64 bit PC issue as our software was developed on a windows 10 64bit PC, this is merely a limitation within the MS Office packaged that Microsoft has introduced.

From our perspective it makes more sense to distribute our applications in 32 bit, this as for the best part they will run on both a 32 bit and 64 bit PC.  Users specifically requiring 64 bit versions should contact us.

Users who have full versions MS Access 2010/13/16/19 installed will be able to run our applications directly, thus avoiding 32/64 bit runtime restrictions.
