I want to use the 64-bit client and link to external Microsoft data but can't because I cannot install 64-bit redistributable. What should I do?
You are using the 64-bit client to obtain or configure external Microsoft Excel or Microsoft Access data using the Microsoft Access Database Engine OleDB provider but you cannot install the 64-bit Microsoft Access Database Engine.
The 64-bit installer you downloaded from Microsoft (AccessDatabaseEngine_X64.exe) presents an error message:
"You cannot install the 64-bit version of Microsoft Access Database Engine because you currently have 32-bit Office Product installed"
You have already have installed 32-bit Microsoft Office Application like Microsoft Excel or Word and the installer does not allow side-by-side installation under normal circumstances.
Install the 64-bit Microsoft Access Database Engine on your INOVX Enterprise Server (IES) and configure the client to use the server to connect to external data:
Alternatively you can override the default behavior of the Microsoft installer and install the 64-bit Microsoft Access Database Engine on the client as follows:
•Download the Microsoft installer (AccessDatabaseEngine_X64.exe)
•Open a Command prompt with elevated privileges (Run as Administrator)
•Navigate to the folder where you downloaded the installer (for example 'cd c:\downloads')
•Execute the following command:
•Verify the software is installed (in example below we installed Microsoft Database Engine 2010):
