Because you can't use "SUM" in your WHERE clause you'll have to use two queries.  Below is an example of both.  Use the first query to create a temporary table and the second to select your orders:

SELECT max([Order ID]),
sum(iif([Product ID] = 'A',1,0)) as PRODUCTA,
sum(iif([Product ID] = 'B',1,0)) as PRODUCTB,
sum(iif([Product ID] <> 'A' and [Product ID] <> 'B',1,0)) AS NONAB
FROM [Orders Detail]
GROUP BY [Order ID];

SELECT Order ID
FROM Temptable
WHERE PRODUCTA > 0 and PRODUCTB > 0 and NONAB = 0
