The 'Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0' provider is not registered on the local machine. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm currently working in Visual Studio 2010 with Visual Basic and I'm trying to open a Microsoft Access database. The message I get when trying to connect to it is "The 'Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0' provider is not registered on the local machine." I have looked in some of the other related posts to see if I could find a solution, but all of the links for downloads they have suggested are broken.

    I apologize in advance if this is in the wrong forum.

    Thanks in advance to everyone who takes a minute to look at this.
