Trying to create a linked server acces to SQL.... getting an error message Error 7399 OLE DB provider 'Micorsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0' reported an error. OLE DB error trace  [OLE/DB provider 'Micorsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0'  IDBInitialize::Initialize returned 0x80004005: ].

When Ilook this up in technet it says that this is related to not having the latest version of JET 4.0 but when I check my version is after version 8
