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?

It is working on 32 bit but not 64 bit.

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.
