You need to check the registry for the following key:

The key will give you the following values:

Access.Application.8: means: "Access 97"
Access.Application.9: means: "Access 2000"
Access.Application.10 means: "Access XP"
Access.Application.11 means: "Access 2003"
Access.Application.12 means: "Access 2007"
Access.Application.13 means: "Access 2010"
