I am trying to configure a user data source under admin tools > data sources (ODBC) so I can point the location to our server database for a specific program. However on this laptop when I click the configure button, I'm getting an error "the setup routines for the microsoft access driver (*.mdb, *.accdb) ODBC drive could not be loaded due to system error code 126"

I then hit ok and get a message that says "Could not load the setup or translator library"

I have performed all Windows Updates, ran scannow sfc, logged in as admin and tried it but no luck.

Hoping someone has an idea on this one. Thanks
