I am building an application using VS 2010 on Windows 7 (64bit) running Office 2010 (64 bit). The application needs to access a MS Access database (accdb). I have downloaded and installed the updated oledb drivers "Microsoft Access Database Engine
My connection string is "Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source=F:\\<path>\\<filename>.accdb"
I still get the error "Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0" provider is not registered.
I see the provider in the registry (I assume it is the right place since the installer put there...HKLM.SOFTWARE.CLASSES.)
Visual Studio Data Sources gets the same error connecting to the database through the server explorer.
