Windows 7 64 bit odbc drivers for Ms Access Missing

    General discussion

  • Hi ,
    I need to connect ODBC data source for MS access as back end and vb as front end.
    I tried adding Ms access odbc driver but only SQL connectivity is available and I could not add for MS Access database(mdb) file .
    (windows 7 64 bit OEM)

    Error
    the setup routines for the microsoft access driver odbc driver could not be found


    the specified DSn contains an achtecture mistach between the driver and application


    I tried downloading and installing Ms Access database engine.exe from Microsoft Website but
    the issue is not resolved.
    also checked the registry
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI\Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)

    but entry was missing
    I tried in Windows Xp sp2 , 3 and win 7 32 bit . It was successful .

    Any workarounds please.
