Error in loading dll - Access 2010/Windows7

Computer configuration :
- Windows 7 pro
- Office 2010
- 32 bits
- Back SQL Express
- Front Access .accdb

We upgraded from Office 2007 to Office 2010. Everybody is fine except one.
On this exception, I can open the software (.accde), my login form appear, then I write my username and password and when I click on the button "Login" I have an error message : Error in loading .dll on the ODBC connection line. I can also have this error message when I try to link my external tables to the front (Access).
Even if the message appear with a .accdb version I can access to the tables,data, forms queries...

What I did :

- Install all the Windows updates
- Re-create an .accde version
- Compare the references with an other computer
- Re-create the ODBC connection

The error is still there...

Do you have a suggestion ?

Thank you very much !

Have you tried running the detect and repair?

AFAIK, in Access 2010 the only way to run it is with VBA code:


Open in new window

Windows 7 32 or 64 bit?
What SQL Server Version?
Which ODBC Driver?

Run & Repair did the job.
