ODBC driver for Microsoft Access installation problem

Brad Fox -

Unable to load odbcji32.dll


Cause: The 64-bit Microsoft Access 2010 Database Engine has conflicted with a 32-bit version of Microsoft Access.




Reinstall the 64-bit Microsoft Access 2010 Database Engine.

You'll also need to follow these specific instructions to install it alongside 32-bit Microsoft Office.




Open Registry Editor:

     Windows 7: Click the Start button then type "regedit" in the Search box, then click regedit.

        Windows 8-10: Right-click the Start button, then click Run, then type "regedit" and press Enter.



Navigate to the faulty entry:

Navigate to Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Common\FilesPaths


Right-click the string <mso.dll> then choose Rename. Modify the name from <mso.dll> to <_mso.dll> (add an underscore to the beginning of the name).

Close the Registry Editor - there is no need to save changes, changes are saved automatically.

Open your M.E.P.CAD program.
