ODBC Access Driver Issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have OFFICE 2010 32bit environment on 64 bit OS server 2008.

    I am trying to create an ODBC connection to one of my 32bit Access Database.

    The application where I will use this connection can accept only 64bit ODBC connection for example in my application when I select ‘Browse’ option for ODBC connections then it shows only connections that are created in 64bit ODBC Data Source Admin.

    When I try to create ODBC connection in 64bit ODBC DATA SOURCE ADMINISTRATOR, It does not list Access data base driver. Is it because I have 32 bit office? If yes then is there any way to add 32 bit Access database driver here in 64bit ODBC. I tried successful connection in 32bit already but that connection won’t show in my Application so I can’t use it. I want this 32 bit access driver to be added in 64bit USER DSN/System DSN in ODBC DATA SOURCE ADMINISTRATOR. Thanks in advance for your help!

  • Unfortunately, you can't install both versions of the Access Database Engine (x86 and x64) at the same time.
