Do you have code to read from Excel, but it just isn't working on 64-bit? Or do you not have code to read from Excel full stop?

Have you compiled your app specifically for x86?

There isn't currently an native 64-bit version of the Jet drivers available, so if your app is compiled with the "Any CPU" setting then it will attempt to use 64-bit drivers when on a 64-bit OS.

Well, using ADO.Net with the Jet drivers is a direct method; or at least more direct than using Office interop. It's just that there are issues with the Jet drivers on 64-bit systems.
