No 64bit ODBC Administrator driver for MS Access on Windows 2012 R2 Server

The system i am using is Windows 2012  R2.  So when trying to create an ODBC DSN to a MS Access DB, and using 64bit ODBC Admin, there is no MS Access driver to select.  If I use ODBC 32 bit admin, there is a MS Access driver to select.  But after selecting that 32 bit MS Access driver, this error msg appears "Failed to connect to link .... [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] The specified DSN contains an architecture mismatch between the Driver and Application".  Is there an OBDC driver update for the 64bit Windows system that solves this issue?  I looked but couldn't find anything that said for Windows 2012 R2 system.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.  thanks.
