The Director Install

The Director Installation

The Director is created in the 32 bit version of Microsoft Access.  If your Office 365 is 64 bit, you will need to uninstall it and re-install the 32 bit version.   This program will work with an earlier version of Microsoft Office, but it must be a 32 bit version.

If your version of Microsoft Office is the Professional version that includes Microsoft Access, you will need to install the version of The Director that does not contain Access. 

If your version of Microsoft Office is the Standard version that does not include Microsoft Access, you will need to install the version of The Director that contains Access.   The version WITH Access will install the Microsoft Access Runtime Version as the software engine for The Director.
