ODBC connection to Access from Vista x64

By | April 29, 2009

I have Vista x64 and needed to create an ODBC connection to an access database only to find out that I couldn’t. I thought this was rather strange. Come to find out, Microsoft doesn’t make a 64bit version of the Access Database Driver. What was I to do. Well Microsoft apparently decided it was going to hide the 32bit ODBC administrator tool by not giving any direct links to it.

To access the 32bit ODBC administrator, just navigate to this folder

C:\Windows\SysWOW64\odbcad32.exe
