OK, so I've been testing running Visual Studio 2005 on Windows 7 machine.
So far so good...however I've run across a problem I can't figure out!!!

The Machine has Office 2010 installed...however the Access Databases I've developed my VS2005 applications with was with Access 2003.

Therefore I'm getting the following error:
The "Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0" Provider is not registered on the local machine.

I've installed the 2010 Access Redistribuition Database Engine...still getting the error?

Thanks
Mark

You also need to install the 2007 Office Data connectivity components :

Is your Windows 7 installation 64bit or 32bit?

You might need to change your compile options on your project from AnyCPU to x86 :
Build Menu > Configuration Manager > Set platform option to x86

I'm off today, but I will check it out tomorrow when I'm back in the office.

BINGO!!!
OK, so the Windows 7 Build was 64bit...but changing the Platform to x86 worked!

Thanks,
