OPENROWSET in 64-bit SQL 2005 installation

I'm trying the following command in a 64-bit installation of SQL Server 2005:

select * from
 OPENROWSET('Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0', 'Text;Database=C:\csv\;HDR=Yes;FMT=Delimited', Names#csv) i

but I get:

Msg 7403, Level 16, State 1, Line 2
The OLE DB provider "Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0" has not been registered.

What can I do?

My initial try would be to setup a (mini-) sql 2000 32 bit on that machine, that could server as intermediate step for such an operation...
alternatively, the BULK INSERT with a format file might be helpful, if the file is truly csv.
otherwise, only code (for example vbscript) could do the job...

I read here:
The is no way to use Jet driver from a 64-bit SQL Server unfortunately.  
They did not port the driver to 64-bit.  
So this would only work from a 32-bit SQL Server.

What other options do I have for referencing a CSV file from a 64-bit installation?
