      Update—By clicking Download, you are granted the following additional right to the Microsoft Office Access 2007 Runtime:
      • Personal Use: You may install and use the software with third-party programs designed and developed for use with the software.
      Office Access 2007 provides a rich platform for developing database management solutions with easy-to-use customization tools. If no end-user customization is required (including report modifications), you can choose to distribute those Access 2007 solutions so that they run without requiring a full installation of Access 2007. To do so, you must package and distribute your application with the Access 2007 Runtime.

      The Access 2007 Runtime is similar to previous runtimes in that all design-related UI is either removed or disabled.

      You do not need to buy any special SKU in order to redistribute the Access 2007 Runtime. You can freely redistribute it or point users to this download.
