Can't use the Access ODBC driver or OLEDB provider outside Office Click-to-Run applications

Affected drivers:
Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb, *.accdb)
Microsoft Access Text Driver (*.txt, *.csv)
Microsoft Excel Driver (*.xls, *.xlsx, *.xlsm, *.xlsb)


You must install an MSI installation of the Microsoft Access Database Engine from one of the following sources so that the calling application can locate the driver and provider.

Microsoft Access Database Engine 2016 Redistributable

Note If Office 365 is already installed, side-by-side detection will prevent the installation from proceeding. To install the package, perform a quiet installation by running a command such as the following:

<File location>:\<File name> /quiet

For example: C:\AccessDatabaseEngine.exe /quiet
