Plans for a 64bit Access RRS feed

  • Question

  • So, with 64 bit operating systems (Win2008) and the need to keep a very small footprint data provider (Access) for non-secure data, does this thread mean Microsoft is not supporting a 64bit access without IIS on the Windows server?  From an architectural perspective, does this mean we should be moving to something else for small footprint Embedded SQL (such as Mysql or something else to support 64bit)?  What are other organizations doing in this space?

  • There is no plan for 64bit Jet. Jet is never supported on IIS.

    Please use this forum to ask questions about ADO.Net. Jet questions are off-topic here. Ask jet questions in the Access programming newsgroup.

  • The Jet database engine has been deprecated (is obsolete). There will be no future version.

    There will be a 64-bit version of Office, however, I cannot say at this time whether there will a 64-bit ACE OLEDB provider or other 64-bit data access library. ACE is the current database OLEDB provider for Microsoft Access.
