Error: The operating system is not presently configured to run this application.

 
If you get this error message: The operating system is not presently configured to run this application.  You will need to install the Microsoft Access Database Engine Runtime on your computer.
 
In the past this came with every Windows computer. On September 14, 2020 changes to Microsoft Office 365 broke software that utilized the Microsoft Access Databases requiring the above mentioned runtime to be installed.
 
There are two versions of this tool, one for 32 bit computers and one for 64 bit computers. Since TimeClockWindow is a 32-bit Application you need to install that release even on 64-bit computers which we have linked here:.
 
 
Download and save this version for your computer (32-bit) and save it to the root directory of your C: drive.
 
Then press the Windows Key plus the R Key to open the run command.
 
Type c:\accessdatabaseengine.exe /quiet in the Open: box. Then click OK to install the runtime library.
 
 
You can verify that it was installed by going to the Control Panel and open the App to uninstall a Program. #1. Click on the "Installed on" Column Label to sort by date installed and the see #2 in my example below that it was installed.
