Upgrade by using the Click-to-Run option

Upgrading to Microsoft Access 2013 has become faster and easier with the availability of the Click-to Run feature. Read on to learn more about how this application manager works to keep Access up-to-date.

What’s the Click-to-Run application manager?

Microsoft Office Click-to-Run uses Microsoft streaming and virtualization technology to significantly reduce the time that is required for you to download and begin experiencing the new features of Microsoft Office applications.

Why would I use Office Click-to-Run?

You can quickly start using a Microsoft Office program if you have a high speed Internet connection. The Click-to-Run Application Manager shows you the download progress. If you want to start to use an Office program, Office Click-to-Run downloads what it must have to have you running with the small delay as that is part of the real-time downloads.

Besides having your Office application up and running very quickly, you will have an updated version from the start, so is no need to find service packs or updates and Office Click-to-Run can coexist with earlier versions of Office. In addition, Click-to-Run makes the required updates automatically so there is no need to download or install updates. Since the updates happen in the background, you can continue to work in the applications. You can try Office Click-to-Run without changing the Office product you currently have.
