  • Hi,

    Could you provide a screenshot of the error message you get so that we can further look into the error?

    Which version of Microsoft Office are you using currently? 32-bit or 64-bit version? Please make sure that you are not trying to install a mixed bitness of Office applications.

    Do you have any previous versions of the Access Database Engine installed on your computer? If so, you will need to first remove the previous install and then see whether this issue continues.

  • I'm having the exact same problem.  I'm using Office 365.

    This is what I get when running the 64-bit installer.


    This is what I get when running the 32-bit installer.
