Microsoft jet database engine error message RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am receiving the error message above when I run Enterprise Reporting Integration -

    " The microsoft jet database engine cannot open the file C:\\windows\system32\tra_17158mdb.It is already open exclusively by another user, or you need permission to view its data"

    my computer is running 64 bit windows

  • Microsoft deprecated the JET engine because it's not designed to be allowing access the data concurrently.

    Time to take a look to the new ACE engine or move on SQL server compact edition or SQL Server Express.

    Btw, your error is most likely because you've forgotten the "." before "mdb", and if your application is web application, the webpage is likely to lack permission to write to %windir%\System32.
