Installation of Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0 provider fails.

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 26, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server


I have a client that has a Windows Server 2003 R2 Enterprise Edition x64 server, running SQL Server 2005 Standard Edition x64.

As we need to import data from Excel I tried to install Microsoft Access Database Engine 2010 Redistributable from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=C06B8369-60DD-4B64-A44B-84B371EDE16D&displaylang=en. Unfortunately I cannot install the x64 version.

When I try to install the x64 version I immediately get the error:

The installation of this package failed.

Without any further error indication.

Installing a 32 bit named instance of SQL Server Express is not an option here; how can I get this installation package to work?

My first thought was that maybe 32 bit Office Web Components were blocking the installation, but there are several websites that need the Microsoft Office Web Components (32 bit) which are installed, so uninstalling is not an option.

What can I do to get this package installed?

Thanks in advance!

The provider reported an unexpected catestrophic failure using BETA MICROSOFT.ACE.OLEDB.14.0 drivers

I'm just in the process of converting my app to be able to support text importing via "OPENROWSET" in 64 bit SQL Server using the Beta MICROSOFT.ACE.OLEDB.14.0 drivers.  I've previously used the MICROSOFT.ACE.OLEDB.12.0 drivers but of course these only work on 32 bit instances of SQL Server.  I've found that after I've installed the beta that the connections wont work if I use MICROSOFT.ACE.OLEDB.14.0 as the provider.  However if I use MICROSOFT.ACE.OLEDB.12.0 it works... sort of... I can import data a few times then I get a "The provider reported an unexpected catestrophic failure" error and the app hangs.My environment is 64-bit Windows 7 running VM Workstation, with a 64-bit Windows 7 guest running SQL Server 2008 64 Bit.  Essentially I'm running the following which works... occasionally getting the failure above select top 50 * FROM OPENROWSET('Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0','Text;Database=c:\temp\captell;HDR=Yes', 'SELECT * FROM [DASDGIGS0013046591395.TXT]')and select top 50 * FROM OPENROWSET('Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.14.0','Text;Database=c:\temp\captell;HDR=Yes', 'SELECT * FROM [DASDGIGS0013046591395.TXT]')Which doesn't work, returning the "OLEDB provider ... has not been registered" message.So I'm thinking that the drivers are 64-bit drivers but the registration process during installation is using

Issue using FastLoad option in Microsoft OLEDB Provider for DB2 v3.0


Hi All

We are migrating a few DataStage jobs to SSIS 2008 and below is an issue that is bothering me.

I am trying to use the FastLoad option of the Microsft OLE DB Provider for DB2 v3.0 but have been unsuccessful. I am trying to run a simple package that loads the data from one DB2 table to another without any transformation.

The reason I am exploring the fast load is because the normal option of OpenRowset does not perform as well the DataStage job to load the same amount of data, its almost 10 times slower.

Oracle connection fail with Microsoft OLEDB provider for Oracle MSDAORA.1



On my dev server I have working ssis packages that use connections Microsoft OLEDB provider for Oracle MSDAORA.1 and Oracle provider for oledb and OracleClient data provider.

Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0 provider is not registered on the local machine- Class Library . win 7 - 64


Hello I wrote a Class Library Program( DLL ) using  VB.Net - It works fine in a 32 bit machine. But when it runs on a 64 bit machine(win 7) . Get this Error:

'Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0' provider is not registered on the local machine." Trying to open an access file

I know this is a 64 bit problem and the solution is change the Target Platform to 32 bit instead of Any CPU , In Soluton Properites. But my application is not a windows Form applcaiton(when I built it it created Dll , Not exe ),  therefore  the Target Plat form is not actiavated in the propeties Tab.

Anybody could help me here. My job continuation depends on this. I am base on a contract and now  company is upgrading all machines to 64 and my Test program doesn't work. I already checked and have the latest version of Microsoft Jet. Thanks  for reading.

Trying to connect to Microsoft OLEDB Provider for Oracle ...but giving the following error


Hi All,

When I am trying to Connect to Oracle 11g using SSIS OLEDB source adapter ....Its giving me the following error.

TITLE: Connection Manager

Test connection failed because of an error in initializing provider. ORA-12504: TNS:listener was not given the SERVICE_NAME in CONNECT_DATA

Tried various ways by changing the TNSNames file and Sqlnet file...but I am unable to connect to oracle database...

If any body have any ideas...can you share with me ASAP...Appreciate your help.




Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0 provider is not registered...while Platform cannot be changed from x64 to x

I have a Windows 7 64 Bit system with SQL Server 2008 R2 installed (which includes VS 2008) and I cannot establish a connection to a simple Access database sitting on the desktop of the very same computer. (Note that I use Office 2010 64 bit)

I downloaded from Microsoft the latest 64 bit AccessDatabaseEngine (Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.14.0) because I cannot even put on the 32 bit version since we use Office 2010 64 bit.

I went through all the posting and could not find a solution.

So, let me summarize this simple scenario:

1) I have: a) Windows 7 64bit Pro, b) SQL Server 2008 R2 including VS 2008, c) Office 2010 64bit, and d) installed AccessDatabaseEngine_X64 (from MS).

2) I have an ACCESS database copied on the desktop of the very same computer

3) I would like to establish a database connection to the ACCESS database on the desktop with Analysis services to build some test cubes

4) Problem: I do not have the option of changing the Platform (under the Build > Configuration Manager > "Active Solution Platform" = "new"....). It does not have the drop down list and no matter what I set. See picture here: http://img821.imageshack.us/f/platform1.jpg/

Hello All,

I get the error 'The 'Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0' provider is not registered on the local machine.', when i am trying to read an excel file.

I have already installed 2007 Office System Driver: Data Connectivity Components available on http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=7554F536-8C28-4598-9B72-EF94E038C891&displaylang=en

I can see the entry of the installed driver on the registry.

The web server is a Windows 2003 R2 Enterprise x64 R2 machine.

After installing the driver the machine has been restarted.

Same build works on a similar machine (Similar Hardware/OS). Hence ruled out rebuilding the code in 64 bit settings.


Thanks in advance.
