I've searched widely and tried anything I can think of to install the VFPOLEDB provider for VFP on my new Windows 8 machine with no success.
I downloaded both the MSM and MSI files from http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=14839
, ran them as Administrator, the installation appears to run just fine, but when I try to access data from my application I get an error that the OLE DB provider is not found.
I have installed the provider before on other Windows 8 computers which I now suspect may have been 32-bit, as I did not have any difficulties with them working.
I also have it working on my previous workstation, which was migrated from Vista->Win7->Win8 and is running 64bit. It had been installed somewhere along the way during my use of the computer...
What do I need to do to get this installed and working in this environment?
