Is there a work around?

Post icon  Posted 29 October 2009 - 11:20 AM

Working on a school project. Just need to know if there is a work around I need to use or if I am really porked in VB.NET on Windows 7 for the error code:

The 'Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0' provider is not registered on the local machine.

Any info would be appreciated much.

For 64 Bit versions of the OS you will need to set your solution to compile 32bit only as there is not 64 Bit version of Jet Engine

I should probably mention:

Right-Click on the solution name in solution explorer and select the compile tab.

Click on Advanced Compile Options (near the bottom in case you have to scroll down)

Set Target CPU to x86

Google worked out well on this one:

There are links and discussions on making it run 32bit on a 64 bit system.
