Running a 32 bit database on a 64 bit machine

94 New Member
I have a database I originally created on a 32 bit machine, which needs the front end updating, but my computer is 64 bit, and so therefore none of the code runs. However, I don't want to convert the database to 64 bit if I can help it, as all the machines it will be running on are 32 bit, I just need to edit it. All are running Access 2010, and windows 7.

Is there any way of editing it on my computer? Or will converting it to a 64 bit database still allow it to work on the 32 bit machines?

Yes, you can usually take 32bit projects to a 64bit and recompile; however, as I said earlier and also within the links I posted, once the project is taken the 64bit version, it will not run on a 32bit install.

Brief experience: moving from 32 (Access 2007) to 64 Access 2016 NOT seamless. We experimented, and eventually took user group advice to stay at 32 bit 2016 . If Microsoft wanted us to upgrade to 64 bit Office 2016 they would have had 64 bit as the default on installation!

64 bit is going to be the recommendation going forward, and probably will also be the default choice soon.

That doesn't necessarily mean any migration will be straightforward though. Not even that it will always be possible.

I have a Windows service that I wrote in C#. It uses a form in another thread to keep it running because we needed some user interface activity. When the service is running the machine will NOT reboot. Anyone have any ideas about this? Is there a way to respond to a Windows reboot event? Thanks, Todd

I have a very long transaction that runs on the same database that other users need to use for existing data. I don't care if they see data from the transaction before it is done and am only using the transaction because I need a way to roll it back if any errors happen during the transaction. Unfortunately all tables affected in the long running transaction are completely locked and nobody else can access any of the affected tables while...

Hi, I've got two users needing to look at the same database, but both are running differnent versions of access.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
