    Hi,

    I'm sorry, but there is no 64-bit version jet.oledb driver. If your application is run as 64-bit program, you may encounter an error saying ""Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0" has not been registered."; If the application is built as x86 application, it will work proper.


    Sincerely,
    Eric

  • Well if there is no support for Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0 (MJE40) in WIndwos 7 64 bit, then how is it possible that the Microsoft Visual Studio and its Web Developer manage to create a temp site such as http://localhost:49915/RS4/ ?

    Is this an issue with the IIS server on Windwos 7?

    Does IIS for Windows 7 Use 64 bit code.

  • Hi, I'm having a similar problem with Access 2003.  We use a fairly complex mbd file (loads of forms, macros etc) which runs fine on Windows XP and 7 32-bit.  I've installed Office 2003 on our new 64-bit machines which seemed to go without a hitch until i tried to run the database file.  the file loads but is so slow it makes it unusable.  Can anyone suggest why the file is running so slow (including all basic access functions like opening the file menu) and how I can fix it.

    Thanks for any help!

  • Windows 7 64 bit supports to run both 64 bit and 32 bit applications - even though they use a completely different instruction set. So in principle, 32 bit applications continue to run. 

    However, Windows does not support loading 32 bit DLL's into a 64 bit process, or vice versa. 

    Jet 4 continues to be available as 32 bit DLL's, thus, 32 bit processes can continue to make use of it. eryang's comment merely means there are no 64 bit binaries of the Jet4 drivers (as of timeposting), thus 64 bit processes are not supported.
