Missing ACCDB database drivers


Please explain this one to me ....
I am on a x64 bit computer (well, not literally standing on it :) ). And I have Office x64 installed, including x64 Microsoft Access.
Using Access I can open ACCDB and MDB files. yet, if I run the x64 ODBC Drivers component there is NO Microsoft Access Database (*.mdb, *.accdb) driver listed.
The only way I can get it listed is if I install the x64 Access 2013
Runtime. Then it shows up.
Why is it not showing if I have access only installed?
Basically, I am trying to detect if my own executable is going to be able to open the ACCDB database OK. I do that by examining what drivers are installed.
I had the same problem on a 64 bit Windows 10 system with 64 bit Office 2016. I was missing 64 bit ODBC Access drivers. Listing drivers (from Python's pyodbc module) showed only:
'SQL Server'
'PostgreSQL ODBC Driver(ANSI)'
'PostgreSQL ODBC Driver(UNICODE)'
I installed the Microsoft Access Database Engine 2016 Redistributable from Microsoft's site and it came with the extra drivers needed. I could then list:
'SQL Server'
'PostgreSQL ODBC Driver(ANSI)'
'PostgreSQL ODBC Driver(UNICODE)'
'Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb, *.accdb)'
'Microsoft Excel Driver (*.xls, *.xlsx, *.xlsm, *.xlsb)'
'Microsoft Access dBASE Driver (*.dbf, *.ndx, *.mdx)'
'Microsoft Access Text Driver (*.txt, *.csv)'
And I was able to query an accdb file using the ODBC drivers from Python.
