I am  using MS Access DB as local database and using OLEDB Drivers.

On building the deployment application, i am facing an errror message as follows ..
oledb32.dll should be excluded because its source file 'c:\Program Files\Common Files\System\OleDB\oledb32.dll' is under Windows System File Protection

You can Exclude OLEDB32 from your installation project.  Since oledb32.dll is already installed, your program will be able to find and use it on the other computers.

On removing oledb32.dll, my application is not able to connect or interact with MS Access DB

At present, i am deploying by removing oledb32.dll.

Application works well in any 32bit Operating System.

On deploying on 64 bit Windows 7.0 OS, application is not working.

Unfortunately, this application has to be deployed on Windows 7.0 64 But OS ( Atleast 5 Laptops )

Thats really a very good website which i look for ..

But i feel hard to understand .. my apologize.

So,

1)
We’ll need to  execute the command below from a command line or Start/Run :
Step 1: - On Windows 7.0 Command line
C:\Windows\syswow64\rundll32.exe "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\System\Ole DB\oledb32.dll"

Whether this will work ?

Chechk on one of the link what it says

All the versions of MicroStation and ProjectWise up to and including V8i are 32 bit applications.  So when configuring your data sources, you need to be sure that you are using the 32 bit versions of the ODBC and OLEDB drivers.  Since these are 32 bit applications they will only see ODBC connections created on the 32 bit side of the operating system.  To setup DSN for 32 bit applications you must use the 32 bit ODBC Data Source Administrator tool.  On a 64 bit OS this tool can be found at:
 C:\Windows\SysWOW64\odbcad32.exe  
(Yes it is confusing but, SysWOW64 is where the 32 bit version exists.)
If you truly have a 64 bit application that requires an ODBC connection, the ODBC Data Source Administrator tool under Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Data Sources (ODBC) will be the one to use.  This tool can also be found at:
 C:\Windows\System32\odbcad32.exe

This is if you need to set it up a conection on the client's computer

Did you compile the Application trying to say that will be x86 CPU Targeting and install in the X64 computer. This must work find. Try to do this
Go to Project Properties, Compile, Advance Compile Options and in Target CPU change from Any to X86

and install in the computer with X64. DO NOT PUT ON THE COMPILE OPTIONS ANY
