Provider for MS Access 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an x64 application which uses Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0 provider to read an MS Access Database on Windows Server 2008 R2 (x64) and it works fine (Office 2010 installed).

    The same application running under Windows Server 2008 R2 (x64) with Office 2013 installed, fails with a message saying that the provider cannot open previous versions. It gives following exception - "Provider cannot be found. It may not be properly installed."

    Can  anybody please help?
