    Same problem, many hours perusing posts – posted solutions fail.  I have an x64 machine (Vista Home Premium) with MS Visual Studio 2008 Standard without IIS, and use Visual Basic.  I can find no trace of MS Jet on my machine – can it be downloaded and introduced to work on my x64 machine?  Often mentioned change (advanced compile option) to x86 in VS 2008 does nothing.  What am I missing, or am I “out of luck?”

    Yes, you will need to do this as there is only a 32-bit version of Jet.

    You will need to install Jet.  The way I can think of is to install Microsoft Access (Microsoft Office).  There are other ways to get it as well, maybe someone else can answer.

  • AFAIK it should be installed. However, as BinaryCoder mentioned neither Jet nor the ACE OLEDB provider will function from a 64-bit application. This is why you have to compile your app for x86 (32-bit) operation.

  • Thank you BinaryCoder.  I'm in the process of obtaining an Access upgrade (to my Office Suite).
