When creating a new database in ArchiOffice (or EngineerOffice), user gets an error:
Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0 provider is not registered on the local machine / External component has thrown an error.
It happens when you have a missing 64-bit Access Database Engine driver in your ArchiOffice environment. Typically, the ArchiOffice setup installs all the required drivers, dlls, and configuration, etc. However, if you have a 32-bit Microsoft Office pre-installed, the setup simply skips over the driver installation.
- Uninstall the 32-bit Microsoft Office products from your system.
- Download and install the 64-bit Access Database Engine driver with version 14.0.7015.1000.
