SQL 2012 to replace SQL 2003 server and ACE/JET components

Hello,

We are attempting to phase out a 2003 Server that ran a decent amount of scripts that utilized ACE and/or JET components. We were able to install Office x64 on the Server but the devs are still missing various ACE*.dlls and it appears that JET Drivers are not supported on 2012.

Google sends me to the Access Database Engine install but right on this site lists:

The Access Database Engine 2010 Redistributable is not intended: As a replacement for the Jet OLEDB Provider in server-side applications.

http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=13255

Any thoughts on how to workaround the lack of JET drivers on 2012 Server?

Thanks!

There is no SQL 2003. You have either SQL 2000 or SQL 2005. Please post the correct version. Thanks.

My apologies. This is SQL 2005 on Server 2003.

This link should help.

The links says:
"Microsoft Jet Database Engine 4.0: Starting with version 2.6, MDAC no longer contains Jet components. In other words, MDAC 2.6, 2.7, 2.8, and all future MDAC/WDAC releases do not contain Microsoft Jet, the Microsoft Jet OLE DB Provider, the ODBC Desktop Database Drivers, or Jet Data Access Objects (DAO). The Microsoft Jet Database Engine 4.0 components entered a state of functional deprecation and sustained engineering, and have not received feature level enhancements since becoming a part of Microsoft Windows in Windows 2000."

You should strongly consider porting your JET to another technology such as SQL.
