I have a project developed in vs 2005 and have upgraded to vs 2008.  I now get the error message "The 'Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0' provider is not registered on the local machine" when running the project.  It has set on the back burner for a while and am not sure if it is due to the upgrade.  When I run the project in vs 2005 now, I get the same message.  I am running 32 bit xp pro.  I have changed the setting in advanced compiler to use x86 processor instead of any.

Thanks,
John

I have resolved the problem by doing an xp repair install.  Of course there were 103 security patches to install afterwards, but it works with no problems now.

Thanks,
John
