  • The problem could be related to the Microsoft JET OLE DB Provider the program is trying to use.

    Uninstall the program and try to install it again using the compatibility mode feature of Windows 7 to run the program as if it was executed in a previous Windows version.
    Otherwise, use virtualization: if you have Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate, download and install Windows Virtual PC with XP Mode (http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/) to have a 32 bit Windows XP SP3 Professional environment in whch you can run your program; otherwise, install a virtualization software, like Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 SP1 (http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=24439) or Oracle VirtualBox (http://www.virtualbox.org), create a virtual machine, install the Windows version you need to run your program and run it.
    Remember that you must own valid Retail licenses for any operating system that you want to virtualize.

    Bye.

  • Hi,

     

    Would you please let me know the program name? According the error message, You may follow Las.D’s advice to install the latest version of Microsoft Jet 4.0 Database Engine. If the issue persists, please contact the software publisher to get more information, such as the software requirement.

     

    Thanks for understanding.
