Hi,

All of a sudden i started getting error that "Microsoft Access ODBC drivers (*.MDB,*.ACCD) drivers could not be found. I tried http://support.microsoft.com/kb/818954 but no luck, tried copying the reg keys from working machine but not luck, tried installing mdac 2.8 but got message that its no longer applicable. Could you please suggest what need to be done to fix the issue as its effecting application usage on one of our production critical machine. Issue is being faced on Windows XP SP2.

Thanks

Exact message we are getting when we try to select Microsft Access Driver in ODBCAD32.exe is as below.
"The Setup routine for the Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb, *.accdb) ODBC driver could not be found. Please reinstall the driver." followed by "Component not found in registry"
