I encountered this error and posted a prior question on EE.  Here is the link

My previous EE question on this error

Rather than explaining everything again please refer to the prior question.

The suggestion I received and accepted were to add the MS Office reference and make sure that the entire Office suite was installed on the machine.

I finally got back to the client.  I discovered that the MS Office 14.0 reference was already present and that the entire MS 2010 Office suite was installed on the machine.

I am still getting exactly the same error.  Any other ideas?

possibly 32/64 bit Office?

We had had issues with 64 bit Access with some earlier client upgrades, so I verified that they were using the 32 bit version of Access.

does the problem occur on all machines, or just one? (and are we sure the 64-bit version was never installed on the problem machine?)

There is only one machine set up to test the upgrade, the rest are still running Office/Access 2003.
I didn't do the install so I am not 100 percent sure 64 bit was never installed on the machine, prior to 32 bit being installed.  Is there any way that can be verified?

not sure
you could check folders e.g.
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\OFFICE14
and
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE14

the latter is the 64-bit path

I asked the client and they said 64 bit was never installed and mentioned that the machine would not even support 64 bit.

Thanks you very much for researching this, it was getting frustrating.  I saw you post in the old question but I've already awarded the points on that one.

I'll award the points on this question but point anyone looking for a solution to the old question.

For anyone researching this issue for a solution.  Coachmen99 posted the correct answer but it is on the old question.  Please refer there for the solution ( a link is in my first post above) .  The short answer is that this function is no longer supported in Access 2010 but there is a work around
