I am not able to install this component to SSMS version 17.9.1.

There are two versions, one for the 64 bit & one for the 32 bit version of MS Office. I have a 64 bit OS installation.

When I try to install the 64 bit version I get an error message.

If I then try the 32 bit version I get the following error message:

enter image description here

I need to install this component to be able to import Access files.

  • why don't use 64 bits ? AccessDatabaseEngine_X64.exe – McNets Mar 13 at 14:42
  • I have tried to use 64bit version, but I got similar error message just saying that I use 32bit Office version which is not true.. – Dund6e Mar 13 at 14:49
  • what OS are you on, 32 or 64? – McNets Mar 13 at 14:50
  • I am on 64bit OS. – Dund6e Mar 13 at 15:21
  • Are you trying to import Excel files? – McNets Mar 13 at 16:13

Try installing the 64-bit using the /passive switch. This should suppress that error and get the driver installed.
