Hi
My development PC has a full version of Office Professional 20132. I have since tried to install the runtime for Access 2013, so that I can pick it up with the 2013 version of the your Access packaging wizard. It appears that Access 2013 cannot be installed on a PC running the full version.

I'm unsure if this is correct or not, and if incorrect what are the files that the wizard looks for - as I can't find any. If not, then I'll just have to install it on another PC and move my Sagekey installation.

Hi Kelvin,
With all of this said, I'd check the Full Office version and the Runtime version to see what one is 64bit and replace it with the 32bit version.
This is recommended even if it is your development full version since the 64 bit

It sounds like you are running into the issue of 32bit vs 64bit compatibility.
Access versions with both 32bit and 64bit versions, only allow one type to be on a system at a time.
This is why we support the 32bit version. This is the version that is designed to work with all machines (even if the machine itself is either 32bit or 64bit).
Microsoft even recommends the 32bit version over the 64bit one unless very specific needs are met.
version is not widely used and adds these complications to deployment as well as working differently in some areas of the code.

On a final note, when supplying the runtime to the Wizard, you do not need to install the runtime. Simply point the Wizard to the runtime installer and it will bundle it into the install process.

Thanks Cole

I was definitely using the 32 bit version of Office. I make sure I stay well away from the 64 bit version .

Your final note is just the solution I needed. That'll do me fine.

Many thanks for the prompt reply.
