Visual Studio - Import Microsoft Access table into DataGridView1 issue

Hi

I'm trying to import a table into my DataGridView1 but i'm always getting an error. Since i'm pretty new to Visual Studio, i was wondering if you can guide me.

The error i have is:
'System.InvalidOperationException' in System.Data.dll

I have Microsoft Access 2013.

Thanks for your help

This is what i have so far:
Imports System.Data.OleDb
Public Class sql_resources

    Dim con As New OleDbConnection
    Private Sub sql_resources_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        con.ConnectionString = "Provider= Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0; data source = C:\Users\Robert\Desktop\Audit_dbase_TDM_2013.accdb"
        con.Open()

        datagridShow()

    End Sub

    Private Sub datagridShow()
        Dim ds As New DataSet
        Dim dt As New DataTable

        ds.Tables.Add(dt)
        Dim da As New OleDbDataAdapter

        da = New OleDbDataAdapter("Select * from TMD_Resources_form_2013", con)
        da.Fill(dt)

        DataGridView1.DataSource = dt.DefaultView

        con.Close()
    End Sub

End Class

The favourite remedy seems to be to install the "2007 Office System Driver: Data Connectivity Components". You can download it from here:

There is a long discussion about the error here:
