[SSIS] : The 'Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0' provider is not registered on the local machine

Hi Experts,

I recently created an SSIS package on my local machine and it works well. Within the package, it creates a connection to an excel file, reads the data and processes it like a dataset. Something like this:

            OleDbConnection con = new OleDbConnection("Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source=" + FilePath + ";Excel 12.0 Xml;HDR=YES;IMEX=0;");
            con.Open();

Open in new window


When I tried to deploy on our test server I received an error. It is important to mention that our test server does not have any version of MS Office installed. So the error I got was :

Error Message ::: The 'Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0' provider is not registered on the local machine. Error StackTrace ::: at System.Data.OleDb.OleDbServicesWrapper.GetDataSource(OleDbConnectionString constr, DataSourceWrapper& datasrcWrapper) at System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnectionInternal..ctor(OleDbConnectionString constr, OleDbConnection connection) at System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnectionFactory.CreateConnection(DbConnectionOptions options, Object poolGroupProviderInfo, DbConnectionPool pool, DbConnection owningObject) at System.Data.ProviderBase.DbConnectionFactory.CreateNonPooledConnection(DbConnection owningConnection, DbConnectionPoolGroup poolGroup) at System.Data.ProviderBase.DbConnectionFactory.GetConnection(DbConnection owningConnection) at System.Data.ProviderBase.DbConnectionClosed.OpenConnection(DbConnection outerConnection, DbConnectionFactory connectionFactory) at System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection.Open() at ST_f688224974424dccb939cc4d81318378.csproj.FileImport.ReadXLSFile(String FilePath, String FileHeader, String DataDelimiter, String SheetName) at ST_f688224974424dccb939cc4d81318378.csproj.ScriptMain.Main()

Open in new window


I googled the error and downloaded "Microsoft Access Database Engine 2010 Redistributable" and installed on our Test server. I even restarted the server.
There were two version of files kept on server, I downloaded and installed the 32 bit version of installer. Name of the file is "AccessDatabaseEngine.exe". Somewhere on internet it was mentioned that SQL Server Integration services for SQL Server 2008 R2 supports 32 bit version only so it seems I did the right thing.

In my package property, Run64BitRunTime is set to False.

After doing all of above, the job still fails logging the error in Event Manager I have given above. However, when I open the package from SQL server BI Studio directly on the Test server and run it from Visual studio, it works like a charm.

Any help regarding this issue will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

If you create the connection that way. it is correct that the BI / IS bitness determines the driver to use.  I'm not confident, however, that IS is 32bit-only, so I would try with the 64bit driver.

Before trying with 64 bit version, just one clarification. Should I uninstall 32 bit version first or can these two coexist?

They can coexist.
